Elstree Triathlon

The much-anticipated Elstree Triathlon took centre stage with a fantastic number of children choosing to sign up and test themselves over the challenging course.

For the second year running, Year 1 and 2 in the Pre-Prep also took part, as well as, for the first time ever, two members of staff! My thanks to Mr Prichard and Mr Doran for being such good sports.

The Triathlon is the last sporting event of the academic year and it gives the Year 8 leavers a chance to strut their stuff on the pitches and ground for one last time. The Shaw Triathlon Cup winner this year was Aaron Roberts who completed the Senior Long Course in a very quick time.

Huge thanks to all the competitors and to all the staff for their good humour, hard work and enthusiasm throughout the event. Here’s to another brilliant Triathlon next year.
