Tata Kids of Steel
Tata Kids of Steel is the British Triathlon tool for engaging with schools. The children’s events are now in their third year, with over 35,000 children from over 400 schools having been given the opportunity to have fun combining the three disciplines of swimming, cycling and running, in one enjoyable event.
This unique series sees British Triathlon partnering with its long standing sponsor and now Corporate Partner, Tata Steel, in delivering a fun and healthy day for school children between the ages of eight and thirteen. Bikes, helmets and t-shirts are provided, so children only need to turn up with a pair of trainers and some swimming attire, helping to make the event accessible to all.
The events are free to take part in, and focussed on giving children an enjoyable introduction to the sport of triathlon.
