We are passionate about helping kids be active, that’s why we set up Reading Rascals Junior Triathlon Club and Kids Sports Events.

The other way we have helped keep kids active is with our Holiday Triathlon Training Camps in Reading.




A whole day (8.30am – 5pm) of swimming, cycling, running and transition skills and FUN at Reading BlueCoat School, Sonning for just £45.00 including a HOT COOKED LUNCH (£5.00 discount if more than one member of a family registers)!

Each camp is different – so children who have been before won’t be bored….

See a sample timetable from our last camp here.

Open to those aged 8 – or turning 8 this year – up to 16

Payment accepted via Credit/Debit card or Childcare vouchers.

HE“My daughter absolutely loved yesterday’s day at Crosfields and came home buzzing. She spent the night on the internet looking at Ironman challenges etc. Thank you for a wonderfully organised day (8:30 start fab for working parents and much appreciated). Please do many more.”

15 Tristars had a fun day at Crosfields School on Tuesday 8 April 2014 practicing all four disciplines of Triathlon; swimming, cycling, running and transition which culminated in putting these skills to use at the end of the day with a a mini Triathlon around the undulating grounds.


We held our first Half Term Triathlon Training Camp on Tuesday 18 February 2014 at Palmer Park Velodrome with 23 keen Tristars aged 7 – 13.

During the morning the children predicted their time to run a mile (4 laps of the 400m track) then actually run it, experienced what it is like to cycle around a velodrome and then took part in a Mini Duathlon.

During the occasional rain shower, we didn’t let that hamper their experience and they were soon “stair running” up and down the stadium steps interspersed with some strengthening exercises.

"I absolutely love Ellie's circuit classes. I'd never really done anything like this before so it was great to be able to go along and feel so at ease trying out new exercises I'd never even heard of! The class is so friendly, we end up having fun while working really hard. I never thought I'd be laughing while doing press ups!!!"
