The head of adventure at the Senior School Mr Nicholas Ngare organized a first ever of its kind triathlon at the Senior School held on the 9th of June. The competitions included a swimming challenge that took place at the Prep School swimming pool, a cross country and a biking race both of which involved a scenic route through the school forest.
The Triathlon was an Under 15 Inter – house competition where the boys and girls competed separately. The competitors started off with a 120 meter swim in the Prep School pool, then sprinted off to the Senior school where they tagged off the cyclists who mountain biked 1.5 Kilometers through a forest trail. The cyclists then tagged the runners who concluded the race with a 2.5 Kilometer run through the cross country route.
