“The triathlon is a great way for school pupils to come together from across the Aberdeen City and Shire area and take part in some fun and healthy competition.

“Active Schools and Triathlon Scotland have been working in partnership to bring this free sporting extravaganza to Aberdeen and I hope that this will attract lots of budding young athletes with their families there to cheer them on.
