The world of Triathlon for children is becoming hugely popular all over the globe starting at age 7/8 years old with kids competing in a non-stop swim, cycle and run. These events are highly achievable for children and are organised in a safe environment yet allowing children the freedom to experience this fantastic event. A Triathlon event is a great way of getting childrens of all ages to get active and healthy by taking part in this three sport discipline that will become a big part of their lives. With this in mind many triathlon, swim and sporting brands have designed triathlon wear in kids sizes for a more comfortable and competitive races including brands such as Speedo, Orca, 2XU and Zone 3. Equipment needed for these events includes a wetsuit for lake swims, which are not compulsory for all swims dependant on the temperature, triwear for underneath the wetsuit worn throughout all sports, a bike, bike helmet, trainers and goggles. Here at Simply Swim we have all the swimming gear that children will need for a great open water swim and some are high vis to give kids and parents peace of mind that they are easily visible. Training is also a massive part of triathlon and so pool swimming comes into this in those months when it is too cold and we have all the pool training gear that helps to build stamina and strength including hand paddles, pull buoys, fins and of course, swimwear. Triathlon is a fun and great sport for children to become involved in.
