988 children kick-started the 2014 Tata Kids of Steel series at Corby.
Despite a couple of heavy showers through the day, the children had a great time mastering the 70m swim - 1km ride on the closed road - and a 400m run through the trees into the finish.
With the local community out in force the event was well-supported with music from Corby radio, and post-event activities for the children including cheerleading, judo, boxing, athletics and the local tri-club. Even the local fire service were out in force helping to hand out medals at the finish along with the Mayor.
This really has launched the series with a huge amount of energy and set the standard for the remaining eight events to come.
