SCHOOLCHILDREN on the Llyn have completed a gruelling triathlon to raise money for Sport Relief.

Children from Ysgol Pont y Gof and Ysgol Abersoch took part in the event at Dwyfor Leisure Centre.

The aim of the event was to raise money for Sport Relief and the schools, as well as teaching the children about the importance of keeping fit and healthy.

The children enjoyed swimming, cycling and running during the event.

The youngest pupils from the schools enjoyed cycling around the hall while the oldest children enjoyed a cycling class on the ‘trixter’ bike (pictured) with Tomos from the centre.

Janet Roberts from Ysgol Pont y Gof said: “We decided not to run the triathlon as a competition but provide an opportunity for all the schoolchildren to enjoy participating in energetic activities.”

Carys Ferris, area manager for Dwyfor Leisure Centre, Glaslyn, Bro Ffestiniog and Pavilion for Gwynedd Council, added: “It was great to see the children enjoy participating and we hope that they are going to continue to stay healthy and fit.”
