On Friday October 24th, Saba Comprehensive School (SCS) students competed in a mini-triathlon held at the Fort Bay. The multi-disciplinary sports event was organized by the Saba Triathlon Foundation in collaboration with Saba Fit and the Centre for Youth and Family.
In teams of six, the students had to complete a track that started with a swim in the Fort Bay harbor, followed by a bicycle ride to the Big Rock gas station, and a run to Tent Bay. All four of the SCS Red, Yellow, Blue and Green ‘Houses’ formed two teams, one with the young students and one with the older students.
The Yellow House won the young students race, after a very close finish by the Red House. The Red House got their revenge in the older students race, when they came in first place and the Yellow House came in second.
Participants in the first two teams of each race were rewarded with a Saba Triathlon t-shirt. All SCS students present received a healthy salad and an Eat Right wristband after the race sponsored by Saba Fit to launch the start of the Saba Fit ‘Eat Right’-campaign meant to promote healthy eating habits among Saban youth.
The mini-triathlon was organized to encourage the SCS students to form youth teams and participate in the actual Saba Hell’s Gate Triathlon on January 31st for which registration is still open.
