Wigan Triathlon Club are an extremely active North West Triathlon Club with a large, active juniors section.
One of the clubs key values, instilled by the previous chairman, is to make Triathlon available to families. As most adults can attest, Triathlon can be an expensive sport, and Wigan Triathlon Club aim to try to help families ease the financial burden so as to allow children to train and race within the sport of triathlon. In the past the club have purchased junior sized bikes that are used for the juniors to train on and they are able to loan for racing on.
With the support of Epic Kidz and Teckentrup, Wigan Triathlon Club have now purchased a stock of junior tri suits to loan out to the junior members of the club so they can race without having to spend money on an expensive tri suit. This means that as they grow they do not need to be buying new tri suits every year, but can race and feel part of the club.
Keep an eye out for the Wigan Triathlon Juniors at races throughout the summer season.
