Brighton and Hove Triathlon partner with Frog Bikes to bring junior multi-events to Brighton beachfront on the 16th and 17th of September
Brighton and Hove Triathlon have announced their partnership with children’s bike specialist Frog Bikes. Combining their love of the outdoors and inspiring children to get active, the collaboration will see the age limit extended to provide competition for kids as young as 3!
3-8 year olds can take part in the Frog Bikes Mini’s Race, a fun scoot, bike & run competition to ease them into the sport. 8-14 year olds can compete in the Frog Bikes Junior Triathlon, an open-water race consisting of a short sea swim, safe closed-road cycle and finally a run along the promenade.
Run by a team of experienced race organisers, it’s the perfect way to give children a taster of triathlon in a very safe environment. For those not wishing to race there will be a demo area with a full range of Frog Bikes available to try as well as other family orientated fun.
