Oundle Children’s Triathlon – 28th August 2022

Oundle Children’s Triathlon



Don’t let the adults have all the fun at the Oundle Tri!

It doesn’t matter if your child is the next budding Alex Yee or Georgia Taylor-Brown, or this is their very first attempt at a triathlon… this is an ideal event for them.

This is an opportunity to race in one of only a handful of indoor 50m pools in the country before completing the bike and run in the grounds of the exclusive Oundle School.

The beautifully manicured grounds of Oundle School

Every child will be individually chip-timed whilst tackling the following distances (ages as at 31/12/2022):

Tristart – 8 yrs old: 50m swim – 800m bike – 600m run

Registration opens at: 11:30am

All competitors must be racked in transition by 1pm, please allow plenty of time to get sorted.


The swim will be a ‘snake swim’ in a 50m pool, with the fastest swimmers starting first. Each competitor’s timing will not start until they commence their swim. (You will be asked on the entry form to predict your child’s swim time. This is to ensure that they are seeded in the correct position in the swim. Its not much fun to be held up by lots of swimmers in front, nor being constantly caught from behind, so please try to be as accurate as possible in your prediction)
The transition will be on the grass.
The bike will complete 2km laps of the playing fields (the Tristart event will have an 800m cut off) on smooth grass
The run will complete 600m laps on a tarmac path that loops around the tennis courts.

The event will finish on the playing fields where all finishers will receive their medals, water and goodies.

A 50m indoor swimming pool
A flat grass cycle lap of 2km (except the Tristars who have a shortened 800m lap)
A tarmac run lap around the school’s tennis courts of 600m

Custom designed medal for all finishers!

Add a medal insert to commemorate your time; whether it’s your first race or a new PB! Available to purchase for an additional £8.
Simply add MEDAL INSERT on your registration form and you’ll be sent the insert in the mail shortly after race day, for you to apply to your medal and display proudly!

The top 3 male and female finishers in each race will receive our ‘podium medals’ at a prize giving.
Prizegivings will take place throughout the afternoon upon the completion and result finalisation of each race.
