Since it first started more than six years ago, thousands of school children have participated in Tri Heroes and become fully fledged duathletes and triathletes.
WHAT IS TRI HEROES?
Tri Heroes teaches primary and secondary school pupils of all ages and abilities cycling, running and where facilities allow – swimming – all without leaving the school!
The programme has been designed by Triathlon Ireland to be both fun and challenging; and can be run as part of a school’s curriculum or as an after school activity.
At the end of the course (which is normally run over five 45min sessions), each student gets the chance to take part in a mini-duathlon (bike-run) or mini-triathlon (swim-bike-run).
Tri Heroes courses are delivered by Triathlon Ireland’s Development Officers and by our qualified coaches. The course can also be delivered by PE Teachers using the step-by-step guide below
