The Event

The UK Kids Fun Triathlon Henley is now in its 8th year and held within the grounds of Henley Leisure Centre & Gillotts School, located just outside the pretty riverside market town on the River Thames. Yet again 2017 saw a record number of children participate, leading to entries closing early due to the event being full.

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 Henley Leisure Centre & Gillotts School
  • Indoor pool swim
  • Grass cycle & run course on Gillotts School playing fields
  • UK Kids Fun Triathlon 2018 finishers medal for everyone
  • Official UK Kids Fun Event T-shirt available to purchase on the day

NB: There will be a promotional video being filmed and photographs being taken at the event so please be aware of this

Thank you for a splendid event on Saturday. India thoroughly enjoyed her first triathlon, and is keen to do another one as soon as possible! The whole event was beautifully organised and the officials were unfailingly friendly, kind, helpful and patient. We all had a great day. See you next year! Best wishes,

Thank you for a great weekend. My daughter enjoyed her first triathlon and I had a fantastic day yesterday! Many thanks

Children may use their own swim cap instead if preferred.

The cycle course is fairly flat and on grass. The course is completely post and taped making it clear to follow and is entirely within the school grounds. Children will not be allowed to take part without a bike helmet.
