The Event

Join hundreds of kids taking part in the Birmingham UK Kids Fun Duathlon where they will be run, bike, running perhaps for charity or just for the fun of it!

A fantastic way to get the kids active and outdoors.

Set in Sutton Park, the largest urban parkland in Europe at 2,400 acres, the course is spectator friendly for supporting family & friends and a fun & relaxed atmosphere is guaranteed.

  • Achievable distances for all abilities of 5-16 yr olds
  • Safe event course contained within the grounds of Sutton Park
  • Grass cycle & run course
  • UK Kids Fun Triathlon finishers medal for everyone
  • Official UK Kids Fun Event T-shirt available to purchase on the day

The park has plenty to see & do for families and on the day facilities will include hot & cold food and refreshments making it a great day out for the family!


As organisers of the biggest triathlon series across the UK we are passionate and proud about what we do and the Kids Fun events are no exception. With hundreds of smiling kids faces at the end of an event parents & children alike gain a special sense of achievement and parents words of appreciation & promises to return next year confirm that the end result was worth every bit of hard work all round.

NB: Due to the cycle course being on slightly uneven grass within Sutton Park, it is recommended racing bike wheels and tyres that are used for tarmac are not suitable for the cycle leg of the Kids Duathlon and Triathlon. Mountain bikes or similar types of bikes would be suitable.

NB: There will be a promotional video being filmed and photographs being taken at the event so please be aware of this

Please Note: Competitor Race Day Information (Individual Start Times, Bib Numbers etc) will be emailed out to competitors 7-10 days before the event.

When you arrive at registration on the day, you will be given two wrist bands in your event day envelope. One for your child to wear, and one for you (the parent/carer) to wear. This allows one parent/carer to go into transition with the children to help them rack their bike.

UK Triathlon Covid Safe Events

All UK Triathlon 2021 events

2020 brought the need for change in the way we run our events, in what could only be described as an exceptionally difficult year for all.

With six events safely & successfully delivered in 2020, we are confident we can fulfil our calendar of events in 2021.

We will continue to comply with social distancing and existing guidelines, following the format we delivered successfully last year.

Below you can read more detailed information on our current format and rest assured this will be amended/updated if/when necessary.

In the meantime, we wish you all the best with your training activities and look forward to welcoming you to an event soon.

Your Health before the Event
If you have any Covid-19 symptoms do not come to the event. If you develop symptoms within 14 days after the event and are tested positive, please contact UK Triathlon immediately.

Social Distancing
Can we please remind you it is each and every person's responsibility to social distance. The same will apply at all UK Triathlon events.

Start Format
Instead of mass starts throughout the day for open water events, each competitor will start at intervals, giving everyone their own individual start time and space. We run this format, very successfully, in all our pool-based triathlons and it works perfectly. Pool based events will also have slightly longer start intervals than usual between competitors.

Spectators
At some events it may be necessary to ask that you don't unnecessarily bring spectators to help make social distancing easier for everyone.

Registration
Every competitor will be temperature checked before being allowed to register. Only two competitors will be allowed to register at a time. The queue for registration will be separated by ground markers to assure a minimum of 2 metre separation. We will provide a sanitising hand station which you must use before entering registration.

Hand Sanitising
There will be 10 hand sanitiser stations around the venue, please hand sanitise before registration, entering transition, finish line and whenever you have the opportunity to do so before and after the event.
Please sanitise before and after toilet use.

Race Brief
There will be a rolling live race brief at the poolside or lakeside. As competitors will start at regularly spaced intervals, this will prevent groups of people and a 2 metre distancing measure will be in operation.

Bike Course
Normal drafting rules apply.

Run Course
Overtake or pass other competitors at a minimum distance of 2 metres where possible.

Feed Stations Run & Finish line
Drinks will be dispensed for you at feed stations, High5 Energy Source & Water will be identified clearly with signs. Move away as quickly as possible allowing for other competitors. Bin your litter. When you have crossed the finish line, we ask you not to stay in that area for any longer than required. Drinks will be dispensed for you at the finish feed area, please move away as quickly as possible to allow other finishers through.

Results
We will not operate our results screen at the event. Provisional results will be online at www.uktriathlon.co.uk later the same day.

Prize Presentation
Presentations will take place throughout the day, please observe 2 metre social distancing if attending the presentation.

Your Covid Officer is Vic Bickerton
If you wish to report anything regarding Covid safety, please report it to Vic located at the finish line.

Testimonial from a Headteacher

Dear UK Triathlon team

I just wanted to say a huge thank from us at St Thomas', the children and parents had an absolutely amazing day at the Cheshire Duathlon.  The feedback from parents has been phenomenal in terms of seeing their children achieve something they never would have normally attempted, also the children have still been buzzing and talking about it (even wearing their medals in school today). It most certainly was an experience they will never forget.

This was a big investment for our school, so from a personal point of view, the event was extremely well organised both prior to and on the day. The UK Tri team made us feel really special throughout the day taking their time to do extra photos and make special announcements etc, this meant a lot to both myself and the children. I can genuinely say that Saturday will be one of my career highlights forever.

The children and myself wanted to send you all a picture of us with our medals to say a big thank you for creating the most amazing memories and giving us the most magnificent sense of achievement.

If I can be of any help in terms in speaking to other schools etc just let me know.

Many Thanks

Louise and Team St Thomas'
