School Roadshow

Enter your school in to a unique and fun triathlon, culture and history cross curriculum training day taking place at Hever Castle.

Tri-Knights Schools Roadshow

We are passionate about helping schools bring to life triathlon and have done this successfully over the last 4 years through a unique cross curriculum School Roadshow. The initiative currently includes our Hever Castle venue with a long term vision of it becoming a Roadshow tour of all the Castle Triathlon Series venues plus more, benefiting school children across the UK.

Primary schools each bring groups of 30 KS2 children (don’t worry if you are from a smaller school, we can match you up with a similar sized group) to the beautiful Hever Castle for a half-day of triathlon training and half-day of cultural learning about the historic venue and setting. All of the activities are curriculum linked helping schools achieve their educational needs, 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.

Hever Castle has hosted this event since 2016, and we plan to make it even better for 2021. Schools pick a day to suit them from our list, the cost is £15 (+VAT) per child attending and that includes all 8 training sessions across the castle culture activities and the triathlon training. The days activities are geared around a group of 30 in a session and children can be accompanied by teachers or parents.
