Organiser's Description

 Ludlow Junior Triathlon Club


Lucton School Children's Triathlon 2018

All competitors that have entered the 6th May event are automatically entered into the new event on 17th June. Any competitor that is unable to compete on this date can email us at to receive a full refund of their entry fee.
We are sorry for the inconvenience that this may have caused but sadly the British weather is beyond our control.
We hope to see you on the 17th June.

Ludlow Junior Triathlon Club welcome you to the 2nd year of their children's triathlon at Lucton School, which is situated in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside, close to the Welsh borders and picturesque town of Ludlow.


After a hugely successful event last year, we have listened to competitor's feedback and made some improvements to the course, especially in regard to shortening the amount of laps that competitors will have to count. 


Lucton school is easily accessed from the A44 and A49 and has excellent facilities including changing rooms, toilets, refreshments and plenty of free parking available.


This triathlon is for Tristart age 8 through to Youth age 16 and is suitable for all abilities, including novices taking part in their first triathlon.


The whole event is run on the school grounds, so offers a safe environment for the children and also provides excellent spectator viewing opportunities. The swim will take place in the school's 23 metre swimming pool and the bike and run legs will be laps on the school playing fields. The transition area will have full racking facilities for 200 bikes and marshals on hand to assist.
