This summer there will be opportunities for children to test their skills and fitness in a series of challenging, fun junior off-road duathlons on Exmoor. Organised by XMAN Events, in partnership with Exmoor National Park, the events will take place on 30th July, at Wimbleball Lake, and on 3rd September, in Lynmouth.
The duathlons involve running and cycling and are being organised in conjunction with the adult extreme triathlons being held on the same weekends. They are open to children aged 8 to 14 and entry is free. Full details of the events and how to enter can be found at www.xmanevents.com .
The aim of XMAN Events is to provide challenging activities in spectacular surroundings. Supported by the Exmoor National Park Partnership Fund, the purpose of these free junior events is to introduce children to the sport and encourage the enjoyment of physical activity in beautiful outdoor settings. The intention is that they will become annual events alongside their adult counterparts.
