Morecambe Bay Youth Triathlon

This exciting project is managed by Lancashire Youth Challenge, Stanleys Community Centre, and Bay Leadership Academy School in Morecambe and will support, enable, and empower a team of 30 local young people to complete three significant physical challenges.

The triathlon kicks off on July 9 with a 70-mile cycle challenge over two days from Walney Island to Grange in Cumbria, finishing on Morecambe Promenade.  Lancashire-based Go Velo have prepared the teenagers for the ride with bike-ability training, cycle maintenance and road safety advice.

Then the young people will dive into the second part of the triathlon, a virtual swim of Morecambe Bay which will involve swimming 520 lengths (8 miles) in relay of the pool at Salt Ayre Leisure Centre where they have received water safety training and swimming lessons in preparation for the event.

The triathlon concludes on August 6th with a walk across Morecambe Bay to raise money for Cancer Care.
