Youngsters aged four to seven took part in a duathlon event, and more than 30 children aged between eight and 15 braved the warm conditions to swim, cycle and then run in a mini-triathlon event. There was a race for adults, too.

"It was great to see so many children - and parents - being so enthusiastic about the events," said Graham Johnson-Mack, Melbourn Sports Centre manager.
