We use the sport of triathlon to inspire children to lead a more active and healthy lifestyle. We work across the UK to bring a fun, free and inclusive experience of sport to children who might otherwise not have the opportunity. Our non-competitive events use a combination of swimming, biking, running, to get kids active, both indoors and outdoors.
Triathlon will also teach your Children to have respect for themselves, colleagues & opposing athletes, it also grows their self confidence, discipline, social skills, & self motivation.
In order to make a lifestyle-changing impact, we deliver multiple opportunities including,
In-school training sessions and events
Multi-school triathlon festivals
