Primary schools each bring 30 KS2 children (don’t worry if you are from a smaller school, we can match you up with a similar sized group) to a Castle venue for a half-day of triathlon training and half day cultural learning about the historic venue and setting. All of the activity is curriculum linked helping schools achieve their statutory requirements whilst keeping the children healthy and inspired (by the World’s fastest growing sport). Bikes are provided for all children and elite triathletes join the training team to share insights with those attending.
Both Castle Howard & Hever Castle hosted school triathlon cross curriculum training days in 2018 and plan to do the same in 2019. Schools can pick a day to suit them from the ones available. The cost is £15 (+VAT) per child attending including all 8 training sessions across the castle culture activities and the triathlon training. The days activities are geared around a minimum of 30 in a session and children can be accompanied by a teacher or parents.
