The team at the Bassenthwaite Reflections project in the Lake District took part in the Bassenthwaite Triathlon last weekend, donning cycle gear
and running shoes
as they swam, biked and ran around the scenic course.
Spokesperson Karin Crofts said the event - in which the Reflections entrants finished ninth in the team relay - was an opportunity not to be missed.
"This was only the second time the triathlon has been staged and it coincided with our last year of operations, so we wanted to take part and see Bassenthwaite at its best."
Lottery-funded Bass Reflections has been working on a range of environmental projects and is holding a festival
to mark the end of its work next month.
Those wanting to get on mountain bikes
themselves, whether competitively or for pleasure, can enjoy a range of routes around the area, such as the track along the old Keswick to Penrith railway line as far as Threlkeld.
Runners in the area can take on some tough hill challenges too, with Bassenthwaite Lake being overlooked by the 3,054 ft peak of Skiddaw.
