First of three Burnham-On-Sea Aquathons will be held this weekend

There's still time to enter this weekend's Burnham-On-Sea Aquathon, which is going ahead at the town's Swim and Sports Academy on Sunday (March 8th).

Three Aquathons of varying distances will be held this year, instead of the normal single race.

Organiser Martin Rogers explained to "We've decided to split the event up into three so that there is an event for every ability."

"The shortest race will be held this Sunday and comprises of a 500m swim and a 5km run. The second race on March 29th will be a 750m swim and a 7km run. The third Aquathon will be held on April 19th and will be a 1,000m swim and a 10km run."

"We welcome entries for one, two or even all three events - there are no restrictions other than a minimum age of 15."

Entry forms can be picked up from the Swim and Sports Academy in Berrow Road or by calling 01278 785909. Entry fees cost £15 per individual race for British Triathlon Members and £18 for non-members. Entries for all three races are £39 (British Triathlon Members) and £48 (non-members). Each race is limited to 120 competitors.
