Course map not to scale.
Kids Duathlon Course logistics:
Run Course 1 will be the start of the Duathlon for all the children (yellow lines).
Once they have completed Run Course 1 the children will get their bikes out of the Cycle Transition.
They will run or walk to the cycle mount line.
They can only get onto their bike once they have crossed the cycle mount line.
Once they have completed all their allocated laps on the bike course, they go back into the cycle transition, place their bike back onto the cycle racking in the same place (White lines).
The children must dismount their bikes before the dismount line.
Then complete their allocated laps on Run Course 2 before going down the finish line (Orange lines).
All Relay teams will complete the same course as the 13 to16 year olds

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. 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.
Louise and Team St Thomas'
