The Triathlon Trust has delivered over 130,000 ‘Active Days’ since we were founded in 2012 and we want to give thousands more children the opportunity to give triathlon a ‘tri’!
Published in 2019, the Triathlon Trust's first Impact Report showcases our first 6 years of changing lives through triathlon. Our Story So Far demonstrates how our work has made a real difference to children and young people across the UK.

Quotes & feedback
"I picked up my daughter from school and she said 'Dad! Dad! I learnt to ride a bike today' and I thought, 'Yeah, sure, it’s probably got stabilisers or something on it'…but she said it didn’t. She said, 'Are you really proud of me?' and I replied, 'Yeah it’s the first time you’ve ridden a bike - I’m really proud of you!'. She was over the moon, she was really, really happy, she said, 'Can you buy me a bike now?'…I was waiting for that one. I was so proud though because I remember how long it took me to ride a bike and for her to do it first time, I mean I’ve never actually heard of that before. Mum was very proud too. A very proud moment. She made me promise I’d be here today so I made sure I was. I’d like her to do more physical activity" - Dad, primary school
I feel like an Olympic athlete, like the ones I saw on the telly! - Anna, 9
"We just wanted to say thank you very much for the fantastic triathlon day which you delivered at our school. The feedback from teachers and children was extremely positive, with some adults saying they thought it was the most worthwhile sporting activity the children had ever done!" - Teacher, Clapham Manor primary school
