The Triathlon Trust can deliver a fun, fully inclusive event tailored to your school or community group.
We provide all the equipment including bikes, helmets, and scooters, a tandem bike and hand bike for those that cannot ride a bike. Our events and activities are suitable for children and young people aged 7+. We ensure a supportive environment for children and young people to enjoy participating in triathlon, with a focus on each participant achieving their own personal goals or contributing to a shared goal.
Working with the facilities you have available, we can deliver a triathlon (swim-bike-run), duathlon (bike-run), scootathon (scoot-run) or other fun multi-sport activity, indoors or outdoors.

As a charity, we only seek to cover our delivery costs - event funding sources could include the recently increased PE & Sport Premium, local business sponsorship, local council health & wellbeing grants, or a school fundraiser (e.g. a sponsored event). Please contact us for advice if you have any questions about funding your event.
A fun, positive and accessible experience of sports can help increase your children's confidence in their abilities and encourage them to become more active.
