THE COURSE:

The Children will start the event at the Pool where the children will swim 3 widths / lengths (depending on age). From here they will get out of the pool and then complete a run which will take them to school where they will collect their bikes or scooters. They complete this part of the TRYathlon cycling or scootering around the school and then finishing off with a run onto the top field and through the finish line where they will be presented with a medal.

BIKE DROP OFF:

For those children who are cycling, there will be a bike drop off on Thursday Morning on the bottom field beside where the new pool is being built. Signs will be posted so the bikes will all be ordered in class order and clearly labelled.  There will be someone monitoring this area, and don’t forget to leave your helmet with your bike. 

SCOOTER DROP OFF: 

For those that are scootering, the drop off point for this will be down by room 13.  Helmets for this section are encouraged but are not compulsory.  If your child is wearing a helmet please leave it with the scooter.
