Volunteers wanted to marshall Burnham-On-Sea's Triathlon

Burnham-On-Sea TriathlonFinal preparations for this year's Burnham-On-Sea Triathlon on Sunday June 1st are underway.

Hundreds of competitors have signed up to take part in the annual event, which consists of a 500m swim followed by a 20km cycle and a 5km beach run.

The organisers have this week issued an appeal to local residents to come forward who could spare a few hours on the day to help marshall the race.

"We need marshalls to help with the drink stations and monitor the bike compound," organiser Rob Semple told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

"They need to be free between 7.45am and 2pm, need to be aged over 16, although several youngsters can be accommodated to man one of the drink stations."

"All volunteers will recieve a free burger and drink on the day. Any help will be greatly appreciated."

The Triathlon was under threat at the beginning of the year when the town's swimming pool faced closure, but when its future was secured last month, the popular event was also saved. Rob can be contacted on 07515 173603.
