DO you think you’re the fittest junior in the village?

If so, 11 to 16-year-olds are being challenged to put that theory to the test in a gruelling Ironman style test.

The challenge will include 25 squat thrusts, 25 full star jumps, a 5k bike ride, 1,000m on a rowing machine, a 3k run on the treadmill, 50 step ups and 50 step jumps.

All of the tasks will be timed on completion and take place at the Armthorpe Sports Centre in Mere Lane.

There is also plenty of time to train because the event is to be held on Thursday, July 19, from 9am to 1.30pm.

Each challenge costs £1 per attempt and there are rewards for the fastest three athletes.
