Young triathletes from Burnham-On-Sea receive sponsorship boost

A group of up-and-coming youth triathletes from across the Burnham-On-Sea area has received a safety boost from a local company.

The 'Young Guns' are a group of 14 and 15 year-olds who are training together under the watchful eye of Burnham-based multi-sports coach Mike Gardner.

The group has just received a safety boost with the donation of flourescent vests from Labelling & Packaging Services of Bridgwater to allow them to continue running on the dark winter evenings.

Mike told "We are just starting a weekly Thursday evening endurance run and thank Darren Nunn, the MD, for the safety bibs which will keep the group safe through the winter months."

"The group train together four to five times a week and race triathlons in the race season from April to September."

"They work very hard and are a very close-knit young group who deserve to do well."
