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 2 or 3 is all you need to share the swim, bike & run!
Just simply 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.
The Birmingham UK Kids Fun Duathlon returns to Sutton Park after it's successful launch in 2017 encouraging more young people to get active. Join hundreds of kids taking part in the Birmingham UK Kids Fun Duathlon where they will be run, bike, running perhaps for charity or just for the fun of it! A fantastic way to get the kids active and outdoors.
Set in Sutton Park, the largest urban parkland in Europe at 2,400 acres, the course is spectator friendly for supporting family & friends and a fun & relaxed atmosphere is guaranteed. The park has plenty to see & do for families and on the day facilities will include hot & cold food and refreshments making it a great day out for the family!
