Last year’s Festival of Sport attracted hundreds of child and adult participants and this years event will see St Albans mayor, Frances Leonard, officiating at the prize giving ceremony.

“There will be events for every member of the family, as well as a Sports Village and entertainments for spectators and supporters.

“Despite the high take up of places there are still spaces in most events. We are particularly encouraged by the number of parents who are entering their budding Olympians in our children’s events.

“But places are going fast, so we would encourage people to grab their place now.”

Lesley Garner, General Manager Westminster Lodge Leisure Centre, said: “The Everyone Active Team at Westminster Lodge are very excited to be part of this fantastic event. We welcome so many families into our facility and I know that the Festival of Sport will be supported whole heartedly by our members and the residents of St Albans.

“There is something for everyone, and a great starting point for people that have never competed in any way before.”

The Festival of Sport will have an incredible range of exciting events, including:

• 2 distances of Triathlon (which involve swimming cycling and running)

• 2 distances of Aquathlon (swim, run events)

• 2 Distances of Duathlon (run, bike, run events)
