Join us for the first year of the Birmingham UK Kids Fun Triathlon held within the grounds of Sutton Park, located in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham. With thousands of kids already participating in or events in Oxfordshire, Shropshire and Staffordshire we decided to add to the 2017 calendar and offer more kids events nationwide to encourage children 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

Schools Incentive Scheme (SIS) - Giving back to your school
We are keen to see more and more kids getting active in an age where it is all too easy to get distracted by technology and forget about the importance of exercise. On this basis we are offering schools an incentive to get your kids involved.
This is how the scheme will work: Parents or schools can enter this event either online or over the phone. One of the mandatory boxes to fill in will be the school name, we (UK Triathlon) will then filter out each school name and send the allocated donation. Whether it be £2.00 or £200.00 each school will be in a win situation.
For every child that signs up we will donate £2 per entry back to your school. For example, if 100 kids sign up from your school you will receive a £200 donation from UK Triathlon for your school to buy sports & fitness equipment.
UK Triathlon's Race Director, Keith Hancock, creator of the Golden Mile, Chairperson of Crewe & Nantwich Town Sports and known for his enthusiastic involvement with Sportshall Athletics says, 'This is a unique incentive scheme designed to encourage many more young people to get active. It is simple, effective and accessible to all schools, children and parents. UK Triathlon are extremely proud to be able to offer this scheme and give something back to the school community enabling them to purchase sports & fitness equipment for their school and get their children active at the same time.'
