A mum-of-three is taking on a triathlon for the first time ever in a bid to raise money for charity.

Anna Fryer has signed up for the RAF Halton Sprint Triathlon, now in its third year, and is preparing to swim 10 lengths of a 30m pool, cycle 21 kilometres and run five kilometres on Sunday, May 5, in aid of Rennie Grove Hospice Care.

Anna, of Aston Clinton, said: “I’m much more familiar with packing lunchboxes, washing school uniforms and jollying my sons through homework tasks than I am with the triathlon world.

“I enjoyed sport when I was younger, but bringing up my three boys has meant less time for such activities.

“They’re now at the age where they’re entering kids’ triathlons, so I felt it was the right time for me to give it a go too!”

To get a kickstart with her training, Anna joined the Stoke Mandeville Tri Club. Head coach David Brown is offering advice to those who have registered, including Anna. She said: “I knew I needed some help to get started and I was warmly welcomed into the club.”

The entry fee is £20, which includes a T-shirt, medal and chip timing. To find out more, visit www.renniegrove.org/rafhaltontri or call 01442 820717.
