Fit and Fun Triathlon Program

A total of 35 students ranging from Years 3-6 participated in the 4 week program which was held bright and early on Wednesday mornings at 7.00am. Only the keen and committed student joined in this wonderfully healthy and positive program.

During the first 3 weeks Mark Beovich from the Nunawading Triathlon Club put the children through their paces in activities such as bike riding skills, running skills, triathlon swimming techniques, transition skills whilst remaining focused on the correct safety tips and equipment.

During the final week of the program the students held the annual ‘Buckley House Mini Triathlon’ which included a 200m swim in the School pool, a 1km run to the North Ground and a 2-3km bike ride around the oval. It wasn’t a competitive triathlon but all for fun; however that didn’t stop most of the competitors going as hard as they could!

Buckley House look forward to undertaking the Triathlon program next year and potentially competing in a community triathlon as a team.
