Schools Triathlon

Celebrate the triathlon sport and be involved in a community event at KMF 2017
Event Grade: Easy

Event Description

Join in the Schools Triathlon event at the Keswick Mountain Festival in June 2018. The schools triathlon is one of the first events in the Festival programme and is a fantastic opportunity to get your school involved in a community event. In 2017 the Mini Triathlon saw over 600 school pupils participate and pass the finish line with a smile! The Festival offers events throughout the weekend for all ages and abilities and we are so excited to have the schools triathlon back for 2018. This triathlon is a non-competitive sporting event offering the chance for children to participate in a triathlon incorporating three disciplines - swimming, cycling and running.

Route Description

The race distances include a 25m swim in Keswick Leisure centre, 1km cycle and 400m run in Fitz Park. PLUS as a ‘well done’ to all the children on passing the finish line we will provide refreshments and a medal!

This is an introductory event for primary school children and is not timed.
