Honiton RFC Juniors' coaches and parents took part in a fund raising triathlon

Coaches and parents from the U7s, U8s and U9s at Honiton Rugby Club took part in a mini triathlon to raise money for these age groups for next season.

Coaches and parents from the U7s, U8s and U9s at Honiton Rugby Club took part in a mini triathlon to raise money for these age groups for next season.

They endured a 800m swim at St Luke's College in Exeter, followed by a 13 mile bike ride which took them to the village of Old Feniton and finished with a 5km run ending up at the Otter at Weston.

They were all cheered on throughout the route by friends and family.

A special thanks goes to Tim from Cycle Honiton who was on hand for any emergencies with the bikes, but luckily we had no punctures!

The guys between them hope to have raised about £1,500. Plans are already getting started for next year's triathlon!
