Almost a thousand people took part in various events as the St Albans Festival of Sport was hailed a resounding success.
Held around Westminster Lodge and Verulamium Park athletes of all ages competed in triathlons, duathlons and aquathlons with children getting involved with a Scootathon.
Mother and daughter triathlon competitors, Elizabeth and Emi Grover, said: "It was a well-organised fun event with lots of different people taking part. Triathlon is for everybody, not just the elite."
Lesley Garner, general manager at Westminster Lodge Leisure Centre, said: "We are pleased that the Festival of Sport continues to support and encourage participation in sport in St Albans and across Hertfordshire."
Gifty Enright, director of organisers Hercules Events added: "Residents came out to watch elite and amateur athletes and to cheer on family and friends.
"We were particularly delighted that so many children took part."
