Canute Kids Duathlon, Rossett, June 30th

An opportunity for any budding athletes out there:

Canute Kids Duathlon at Darland High School in Rossett, Nr Wrexham on Sunday June 30th.

The Canute Kids’ Duathlon Series gives primary school and Year 7 kids a chance to take their first steps in multi-sport and compete on a uniquely designed course, set entirely within the safe confines of the specially selected venues.

The races are for children between 4 and 12 years old who would enjoy the opportunity to experience what will be an exciting introduction to the world of run-bike-run!

Darland High School, Rossett – Sunday 30th June 2019
Knutsford – Sunday 7th July 2019

The events are carefully marshalled and signposted, ensuring that the safety of the participants is prioritised.  The route is marked with tape to ensure everyone stays on course. The finish is through the finish banner, and the PA system ensures there is a fun atmosphere and participants will feel like a ‘proper’ athlete.

Every finisher at Darland will receive a medal and goodies from Kellogg’s and The Village Bakery who are kindly supporting the event.   There will be awards for the Duathlon race winners.

At each event there are four races to choose from depending on the child’s age:

Event 1 – School Years 5, 6 & 7: 1.5km run | 3km Bike | 500m run

Event 3 – School Years 1 & 2: 500m run | 1Km Bike | 500m run
Event 4 – Age 4+ – 1K Fun Run

Entry to the Fun Run is £6 per entrant.
Entry to each Duathlon is £12 per entrant

This is the third successive year that they have held a kids’ Duathlon in Knutsford, and they have enjoyed the whole experience. Earlier this month, they saw almost 100 kids taking part at our first event of the year in Lymm, which was a huge success, as you can see from the press coverage.  The children (and parents) all loved it!

We really hope that some children from your school enter, and would ask you to kindly forward this message to parents, along with the attached leaflet. Canute Kids 2019 Flyer V3 (1)
