Tata Kids of Steel

Tata – Kids of Steel is the world’s largest and longest-running kids triathlon series. It is part of Tata Steel’s Community Partnership Programme, in which the company works with communities close to its operations to support their social and economic wellbeing. To date, there have been 100 events, making it the largest and longest-running children’s triathlon series in the world.

Tata Steel, in partnership with British Triathlon, launched the Tata – Kids of Steel triathlon series in 2007. The series aims to encourage children across Great Britain to adopt a healthier lifestyle through sport and exercise, as well as providing a great day out for the local community. 
To date, nearly 70,000 eight to 13-year-olds from hundreds of schools have experienced triathlon through the Tata – Kids of Steel triathlon series. 
Tata – Kids of Steel gives youngsters of all abilities the opportunity to have-a-go at this dynamic sport with manageable distances. 
A typical format consists of a short swim of 40 to 60 metres, followed by a traffic free cycle of 800 to 1200 metres and a run of approximately 400 metres. The events are fully inclusive, ensuring every child has a fun and positive experience of sport, regardless of ability. 
All equipment is provided and every child that participates receives a t-shirt, swim cap, gym sack and medal. The events are delivered by the British Triathlon Trust, in close collaboration with local schools and community sports clubs.
