Triathlon tribute to Olympic legacy with Tata Kids of Steel series
Could your child join the 10,000 youngsters across the country who will celebrate the London 2012 Olympic legacy?
Tata Steel is giving children aged between eight and 13 the opportunity to take part in its Tata Kids of Steel triathlon series which will see over 10,000 youngsters across the UK team up to swim, run and cycle almost 10,000km – the distance between London and Rio de Janeiro, the next host city of the games.
Future generations team up for Tata Kids of Steel triathlon series
The 2013 Tata Kids of Steel events are open to all children, regardless of ability or experience. The events will be taking place at 12 venues across the UK from now until September.
Locations include Swansea, Birmingham, Corby, Scunthorpe, Sheffield, Teesside, Bristol, Workington and Mold, with the grand finale in Newham in London on 30 September. Places for the events are limited and allocated on a first come first served basis.
Tata Steel and the British Triathlon Federation are a winning team for kids’ fitness
The Tata Kids of Steel triathlon series – now in its seventh successive year – is a joint venture between Tata Steel and the British Triathlon Federation. The series aims to encourage children to adopt a healthier lifestyle through sport and exercise, by working in partnership with the local community.
Many of the events are located close to Tata Steel’s manufacturing operations and Tata Steel employees will be volunteering to ensure the events run safely and smoothly.
More than 50,000 youngsters have benefited from Tata Kids of Steel series
Tata Steel is the Corporate Partner of the British Triathlon Federation and strives to promote the sport while at the same time having a positive impact on the lives of young people throughout the UK.
The Tata Kid of Steel series has given more than 50,000 youngsters the opportunity to have a go at triathlon since its launch in 2007, and has been the catalyst for the creation of British Triathlon Federation’s charitable arm – the British Triathlon Foundation.
