Scootathlon

400m Scoot, 400m Bike, 150m Run

The scootathlon is a mini fun triathlon for children between the ages of 4 and 8 where they scoot, bike and run. Boys will race with girls at the same time in various age categories.

The race begins in front of the Abbey with a 400m scoot (any scooter is suitable) then it’s into transition, put down the scooter and pick up the bike and cycle the 400m lap. Then it’s back into transition for the last time, leaving the bike next to the scooter and then out for the final 150m run to the finish gantry in front of The Abbey to collect your medal.

Scooting, cycling and running will always be in an anti-clockwise direction and all three disciplines must be done wearing a helmet. The course is flat with closed roads for the scoot, bike and run.
