Quickline Collaborates with Brownlee Foundation for Lincolnshire Mini Triathlon

Lincolnshire, UK – Quickline, the innovative broadband provider, has joined forces with the Brownlee Foundation to introduce a thrilling sporting event aimed at kindling a passion for sports and fitness among children in Lincolnshire.

This initiative marks the first-ever mini triathlon hosted in Lincolnshire and is conducted in partnership with Quickline as they continue their mission to provide fast and reliable internet connections to rural Lincolnshire communities.

Scheduled to take place at the One NK Leisure Centre, Moor Lane, North Hykeham, Lincoln, on Wednesday, July 5th, this event welcomes Key Stage 2 children, offering schools the opportunity to introduce their students to an enjoyable and inclusive sporting experience.

The mini triathlon is free and non-competitive, allowing children to explore all aspects of a triathlon, including swimming, cycling, and running.

Founded by Olympic triathletes Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, the Brownlee Foundation’s goal is to inspire children from diverse backgrounds to embrace sports, encourage active lifestyles, and reap the benefits that sports offer.

Bikes and helmets are provided, and each child will receive a t-shirt in advance, along with a medal and a Quickline goody bag upon crossing the finish line.

Charis Palmer-Smeaton, representing the Brownlee Foundation, highlighted the positive feedback received from schools participating in these events. She emphasized the importance of involving all children, whether they are sports enthusiasts or not, ensuring that everyone has the chance to try a sport that may be entirely new to them.

Kat Jeffery, Head of Marketing at Quickline, expressed enthusiasm about partnering with the Brownlee Foundation to bring the mini triathlon to Lincolnshire. Recognizing the numerous physical and mental well-being advantages that physical activity offers to children, Quickline is proud to support this remarkable initiative and extend this opportunity to children residing in rural areas.
