Event description

Description

Welcome to the 4th St Andrew's primary school mini triathlon and scoot n run event.

Now in its 4th year, the triathlon has pupils in KS2 swimming in the school pool, cycling on the field, and then running a short circuit outside the school. The distances are shown below for the different year groups. They can either enter as a team of three OR as an individual, but not both. As a team, you need to know your team name and which person is doing the swim, the cycle, and the run before entering online. Each of the 3 team members will need a parent to enter for them online (ie a seperate entry is needed for the swimmer, the cyclist and the runner if you are entering as a team). The triathlon is timed and individuals and teams can get their times at the end of the event if they want to, but the main emphasis is on taking part and having fun.

For the mini scoot n run, foundation and KS1 will first of all scoot round a set course on the KS1 playgound and then run the same route as the triathlon. Don't worry if you dont have a scooter, there will be plenty around on the day for people to share.

Both events are voluntary! There is a fun run for those not doing the tri or the scoot n run.

The event has been great fun to organise over the last 3 years. However, please note, we are not professional sports events organisers! We are working parents who organise this in our spare time. It relies very heavily on parent helpers and needs at least 40 volunteers to run safely on the day. If not enough people sign up to help, it cannot go ahead. Thanks to those who have helped in previous years, and thank you in advance to those who can help again this year.

If you would like to do this as a sponsored event, we have chosed to support heartswell.org.uk. This is a local charity based in Plymouth, which helps, amongst other things, providing community defibrillators and also accomodation who have relatives undergoing care at Derriford Hospital. Sponsorship forms will be out in book bags soon. Triathlon t shirts will also be available to purchase.

Distances for the triathlon

Year 3 and 4 : 4 lengths of the pool, 400m cycle on grass (school field), 500m run (around the village).

Year 5 and 6: 8 lengths of the pool, 800m cycle on grass, 500m run.

Please note - a helmet must be worn for the bike ride and for the scoot.

When you register online, the first details that are asked for will be the parent / guardian, followed by you child's details. Email us if you have any questions!
