Hundreds of Kent primary schoolchildren will be taking part in a triathlon roadshow at Hever Castle this summer, involving a day of training and culture organised by the hosts of the Castle Triathlon Series.
Eights schools will be taking part on 8 July by inviting 400 kids aged 8-11 to the roadshow, described as a pilot for what could become a national scheme that aims to combine cross curriculum activity and foster wider access to sport. More information on the ‘TriKnights’ project here.

Alison Saunders, Head teacher at St Lawrence primary school (Stone Street) which will be taking part in the day, said: “This is a unique and exciting opportunity for the children to be exposed to a contemporary and popular sport.
“It is our role to expose children to changing trends in learning and sport and help motivate them to lead a healthy lifestyle. Triathlon broken down is swimming, cycling and running so naturally part of a child’s life, and we hope to use this fun platform as a creative way of delivering the curriculum and benefiting the children.”
The day will see the children’s time split between cultural education and sport. The triathlon section will encompass a lake swim, cycle around the lake and run through the grounds pre-empted and supported by triathlon coaches who have been involved in the Olympic Games (www.thetrilife.co.uk).
