Tetrathlon October 1st and 2nd at Whitchurch and Smallwood.

Three phases will be on the Saturday and then the riding on the Sunday at Smallwood.

It is being run as a Tetrathlon but there will be Triathlon classes as well!   I would think there will be a 3ft Cross Country course for Juniors, 2ft 6 for Mini’s (or drop down course for Juniors) and a small Cross Country course over a shorter distance and a 1ft 6inch Show Jumping round. So classes for all.
