Jonny Brownlee inspires kids to TRI inside the Houses of Parliament

Published:

Yes, you read that correct, at the end of November, we delivered a triathlon INSIDE the Houses of Parliament.

 To mark the 100th Tata Kids of Steel event, the British Triathlon Trust delivered it's most iconic event to date.
30 lucky children who participated in the 2013 Tata Kids of Steel series were invited to take on the challenge of a Dry Tri, with an audience of MPs, Execs from Tata Steel and stars from the world of triathlon.
Jonny Brownlee, Lauren Steadman and Nicole Raymond were all there encouraging the kids to try their best on the VASA swim benches, turbo-trainer bikes and treadmills.

Every participant walked away with a specially engraved medal and a certificate of their personal achievement  - a great memento of what will surely have been a memorable day, that also included an educational tour of the building.

At the half-way point, speeches were delivered by Tata execs, British Triathlon CEO, Zara Hyde-Peters and finally an inspirational speech from Jonny Brownlee
"...it doesn't matter what sport you do, I was playing football until I was 15......just get out there, enjoy taking part and being active....."
Great words from Jonny....couldn't have said it better ourselves!
