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.'

Cheshire Kids Duathlon Course Logistics:
Run Course 1 will be the start of the Duathlon for all the children (Yellow lines).
Once they have completed Run Course 1 the children will get their bikes out of the Cycle Transition.
They will run or walk to the cycle mount line.
They can only get onto their bike once they have crossed the cycle mount line.
Once they have completed all their allocated laps on the bike course, they go back into the cycle transition, place their bike back on to the cycle racking in the same place (White lines).
The children must dismount their bikes before the dismount line.
Then complete their allocated laps on Run Course 2 (Orange lines) before going down the finish line.
