Carlisle Tri Junior Club started in October 2012 with 36 members and has successfully risen to 60 members.
They pride themselves on being a friendly and welcoming club, with the focus being on encouragement and enjoyment thus hopefully inspiring their members to achieve their own goals and to go on to lead a long healthy and happy lifestyle.
One of Carlisle Tri Clubs long-term plans is to invest in their young athletes by getting them involved in the running and coaching within the Club. This will hopefully give them a broader and richer understanding of the benefits of being involved in sport from an early age, as well as inspire the younger members to progress.
Every year Carlisle Tri host a triathlon in September. This year they held a Junior Triathlon event and the money donated by Epic Kidz went towards the running costs of this event. The event was extremely successful with lots of lovely, positive comments being received from the parents of the children who were competing.
