Countdown to Canute Kids Duathlon 2018


Entries are still open for the Canute Kids Duathlon at Egerton Youth Club in Knutsford, taking place on Sunday 8th July.

The event made a successful debut last year, when over 120 primary school aged children from Knutsford and the surrounding area took part.

The Canute Kids Duathlon caters for children from 4-12 years of age, with three run-bike-run events and a fun run.

“It’s a really inspiring day, because the focus is all about taking part and having fun in a safe environment,” organiser Vicky McKinnon explained.

“We have made a few tweaks for this year by opening entries up to year 7 pupils and there will also be trophies up for grabs,” McKinnon added.

Distances vary depending on age, but all of the races are held in the grounds of Egerton Youth Club on Mereheath Lane. 

Fellow organiser Helen Murray commented: “It doesn’t matter how fast or slow the kids are, there is so much support from parents and volunteers!

“Each participant is encouraged around the course and rewarded for their hard work with a medal and a goodie bag.”

Each participant will also receive healthy treats at the finish line and a discount on sports clothing. 

Paul Rance, of CFC Charity Bike Shop in Prestbury, will also be on hand for any last minute bike mechanical issues.

Children will need to bring their own bike and helmet to take part in the event which costs £10 for the duathlon and £5 for the fun run.
