Age groups are based on the age of your child on 31st December 2019. i.e. if your child is still 11yrs old on 31st December 2019, they should race in the 11-12yrs category. If they are 10yrs old on 31st December 2019 but their birthday is on 1st January 2020, they should race in the 8-10yrs category.
The Novice 1-2 and Tristart categories are generally for beginner and first time triathletes - all athletes will get their times and a medal but it is more about taking part than competing for positions. Tristarts and Novice 1's will race together as one wave. The Tristars 1-3 and Youth categories are for slightly more experienced triathletes and will race in separate waves.
Trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place are only awarded in the Youth, Tristart and Tristars categories. The results from these categories count towards the TESE Junior Race Series. For more information on the TESE Junior Race Series categories, please see the Race Series Events page.
The Bri Tri Kids Triathlon, Steyning, in association with kidstriUK, is intended to be a fun event for ALL the children. All cycleworthy bikes are acceptable and your children don't need to have special tri-suits or other gear. We just want them all to experience the wonderful feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment having just finishing a swim, bike and run :-)
