A Successful First Poole Park Duathlon

This year's first Poole Park Duathlon, the Duathlon with a difference, came to a successful finish on Sunday afternoon.

Working together with Poole Festival of Running, we hosted the Duathlon 'with a difference' on Sunday 4 June at our Poole Park Centre. 

Upto 20 entrants of all ages took part in the watersports-based Duathlon featuring a 2km run around the lake, a 1.2km paddle and a second 2km run of the lake. Competitiors were offered the option of a kayak or stand up paddleboard to use for their on-water section, the kayak turned out to be the popular and fast choice for many of the individuals and teams taking part. 

Congratulations to Tom Richards who completed the three laps in under 29 minutes, followed very closely by Selwyn Richards and Team Sarah Swift & Steven Short claiming second and third place respectively.

Rockley Poole Park Centre Manager, AJ Windsor commented after the event: "The Duathlon went really well and we have had some great feedback. It would be good to work with Poole Festival of Running to help put this event on again."

The benefits of a school residential trip for teachers and group leaders >

Teachers are amazing! However, with increasing pressures on workload and such a busy job, why take the extra time to organise a school trip? Well, because believe it or not there are many benefits for you, as well as the students. 

Preparing young people for their first residential trip (for the youngsters) >

Every young person is unique - some come across as confident, energetic leaders, whilst others shy away from the limelight to work away in the background. Here at Rockley, we celebrate the achievements of all our students and nurture and mould their skill set. However, no matter how outgoing or confident a young person may be - going on a school trip away from home for the first time, can be scary and daunting which is why we want their first trip away to be a fantastic one! 

We're making waves!
