Hundreds of Kent primary schoolchildren will be taking part in a triathlon roadshow at Hever Castle this summer, involving a day of training and culture organised by the hosts of the Castle Triathlon Series.


Eights schools will be taking part on 8 July by inviting 400 kids aged 8-11 to the roadshow, described as a pilot for what could become a national scheme that aims to combine cross curriculum activity and foster wider access to sport. More information on the ‘TriKnights’ project here.

Alison Saunders, Head teacher at St Lawrence primary school (Stone Street) which will be taking part in the day, said: “This is a unique and exciting opportunity for the children to be exposed to a contemporary and popular sport.
