Torquay Boys' Grammar School in Torbay are trying to organise a Devon Triathlon Competition and have latched onto an existing Triathlon to enable it to happen.
The triathlon (Pool swim>Velopark ride> Park run )is in Goodrington, Paignton on Sunday 24th May and because there are very few triathlons for children anywhere in the country we don't want your SLS Club or local school to miss out!
The English Riviera Junior VeloPark Triathlon (Sunday 24th May) takes place in Goodrington at the Torbay Leisure Centre and Torbay Velopark. I have approached the organisers of the triathlon and they are happy to include an inter-school element to the competition. Any pupil from year 3 up can enter but if a school wants a chance of competing for the Devon Schools Triathlon Cup then they must have a minimum of 3 pupils (3x minimum-must be one of each gender, plus one)enter the triathlon from their school.
Pupils and parents enter the triathlon online themselves. Schools just have to promote to their pupils/parents to take part. The categories will be- Yr 3 & 4, Yr 5 & 6, Yr7 & 8, Yr 9& 10. The school team with the best results from each category combined wins the first inter-school Devon Schools Triathlon Cup!
The Triathlon is a Triathlon England accredited and supported event with over 100 children already entered. The cost to enter is only £15 per student and a school does not need to accompany the students but each student must have a parent/carer with them. To encourage schools to promote attendance from their school, the Triathlon organisers are offering one FREE adult place per school (adult triathlon from noon on the same day) for teachers that organise at least 3 pupils from their school. Schools can enter as many competitors are they want, only the top three places for that school will count for the completion.
