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 3 is all you need, a swimmer, a cyclist and a runner!
Just simple 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.

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.'

When you arrive at registration on the day, 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 transition with the children to help them rack their bike.
