Children’s Recommended Distances
There are generally no hard and fast distances in Junior Triathlon and most are based around the size of the facilities on offer at different locations. For instance, not all pools are 25m in length, those in found schools are often 20m or shorter. Likewise, a lot of cycle courses are made up of a mixture of grass and tarmac with a distances lying somewhere in the middle of the two.
