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,

The pool is 25 metres long, tumble turns are not allowed. Children will be started at 20 second intervals in the pool. The swim course is very straight forward and there will be a verbal briefing prior to each child starting. A swim cap will be given to each child and must be worn. 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.
The run is fairly flat and entirely on grass. The course is again completely post & taped and within the grounds of the school.
