NB: Due to the cycle course being on slightly uneven grass within Sutton Park, it is recommended racing bike wheels and tyres that are used for tarmac are not suitable for the cycle leg of the Kids Duathlon and Triathlon. Mountain bikes or similar types of bikes would be suitable.

Do it as a Relay! A team of 2 or 3 is all you need to share the swim, bike & run!

Just simply pick the discipline that you love and get your friends and family to choose what they'd like to do to complete your relay team.

The Event

The Birmingham UK Kids Fun Triathlon returns to Sutton Park, located in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham. With thousands of kids already participating in our events in Oxfordshire, Shropshire and Staffordshire this addition to the calendar offers more kids the opportunity to have a go at something different.

As organisers of the biggest triathlon series across the UK we are passionate and proud about what we do. The Kids Fun Triathlons are no exception and leave everyone with a special sense of achievement at the end of an event when hundreds of smiling kids faces, parents words of appreciation and promises to return next year confirm that the end result was worth every bit of hard work all round.

  • Achievable distances for all abilities of 7-16 yr olds
  • Safe environment with event course contained within the grounds of Sutton Park
  • Safe lake swim with lane rope, safety boats and plenty of support in the water
  • Spectator friendly grass cycle & run course
  • UK Kids Fun Triathlon 2018 finishers medal for everyone
  • UK Kids Official T-shirt available to buy on the day

When you arrive at registration on the day of the triathlon, you will be given two wrist bands in your event day envelope. One for your child to wear, and one for you (the parent/carer) to wear.

This allows one parent/carer to go into the cycle transition area with their children.
