The Schools Aquathlon is a children’s swimming and running event which was launched in 2012 as a new initiative for England’s Olympic year to get as many children as possible involved in trying out a new sport. It is the perfect introduction to the popular and ever growing sport of Triathlon. To date over 2500 boys and girls aged between 7 and 13 have entered this fantastic competition.

A terrific 80+ children from Somerhill competed in the 2016 Schools Aquathlon at Caterham School yesterday. They had a great day in almost tropical conditions! All of our pupils competed very well, with lots of medals awarded.
