A QUES­TION MARK con­tin­ues to hang over the fu­ture of Tata Steel, the com­pany be­hind the Tata – Kids of Steel Triathlon Se­ries, one of the big­gest and long­est run­ning chil­dren’s triathlon se­ries in the world.

Jack Buck­ner, CEO of Bri­tish Triathlon as­sures us that: “Tata Steel con­tin­ues to sup­port the Tata – Kids of Steel Triathlon se­ries. This year marks the 10th year of the se­ries. Dur­ing that time, more than 75,000 chil­dren aged 8-13 have ex­pe­ri­enced their first triathlon as part of what is be­lieved to be the world’s largest and longestrun­ning chil­dren’s triathlon se­ries. Some of those have gone on to par­tic­i­pate and ex­cel in the sport.

He adds: “Our cur­rent spon­sor agree­ment with Tata Steel will ex­pire fol­low­ing the 2016 se­ries of events. As al­ways, we will be work­ing with Tata Steel to eval­u­ate the cur­rent re­la­tion­ship and to make a mu­tual de­ci­sion on the fu­ture.” Were you one of the 75,000 Kids of Steel who have ex­pe­ri­enced the se­ries?
