Who are the Triathlon Trust?
The Triathlon Trust is the official charity of British Triathlon. We have been active since 2012 and work in cities, towns and communities across the UK.
What are the Triathlon Trust trying to achieve?
We use the engaging sport of triathlon to encourage children to lead more active and healthier lifestyles.
Since 2012, we have delivered over 100,000 Active Days, providing fun, free and inclusive opportunities for children of all abilities to give triathlon a “tri”.
Our triathlon-based participation events are free to enter, non-competitive, and suitable for children of all abilities, including those with physical disabilities and special educational needs. We provide all the equipment required to participate including bikes, helmets, scooters and floatation devices.

Our mini-triathlons give up to 1,000 local schoolchildren the opportunity to complete their first triathlon and every child receives a medal for participating. This year we’re delivering mini-triathlons in Bristol, Reading, Crosby, Mold, Corby, Bradford, Leeds, York, Hull..!
We also work in schools, delivering a fun duathlon challenging their pupils to see how far they can collectively travel as a school.
You may also spot us at triathlon shows and big sporting events with our free ‘have a go’ activity for the whole family. We use rowing machines, static bikes, shuttle runs and speed jumps to create a fun ‘dry-tri’. This year you can find us at the Triathlon Show: London, and the Accenture World Triathlon Mixed Relay Nottingham to name but a few.. Why not bring the family along and have a ‘tri’!
