Almost 160 junior athletes braved the snow and cold on Sunday to take part in the GTC Allander Youth Aquathlon.
The atmosphere was very upbeat and it was brilliant to see so many young competitors smiling as they raced in the two-discipline event.
The youths completed a pool swim before a run in the grounds around the Bearsden leisure centre. The distances vary according to age category.
More than 30 juniors raced for Glasgow Tri Club with five taking podium places.
Race organiser Pete Soden said: “It was a superb effort from all the competitors, parents and Team Glasgow Tri Club. We delivered a great morning’s programme of racing on a safe course, on schedule and against challenging early weather conditions.”

Maddie McAllister, who was third in the Tristar 3 girls, said: “This was my first race this year and I loved running in the snow as it made the race really different and fun.”
Sisters Calli and Jodi Abel raced together for the first time. They both competed in the Tristar 1 girls. Calli said: “It was weird having my sister in the same race as me. I was very proud of her. The race was cold but lots of fun.”
It was Jodi’s first GTC event having only just joined her sister in the club. She said: “I was nervous at the start but when I came out of the pool and heard everyone cheering for me I was very proud and happy. Even Billy, the coach, was cheering for me!”
Ella said: “It was hard doing it but it was worthwhile and I would do it again.”
Euan added: “It was harder than I thought it would be and absolutely freezing but I really enjoyed it.”
Cake stall fund-raiser
As tradition now has it, there was a cake stall at the aquathlon with baking supplied by club members. This event raised a fantastic £264.50, which will go to supporting the development of the GTC youth squad. Thanks to all who baked.
