Inclusive Multisport event returns for fourth year supporting FE learners to get active!


The ColegauCymru inclusive FE Multisport Event will return today for its fourth year! 

Hosted at Pembrey Country Park on Wednesday 15 May 2024, this Duathlon offers an opportunity for all learners and staff in further education settings to participate in their first multisport event at a range of levels. Our previous events have welcomed participants ranging from Independent Learning Skills (ILS) learners enjoying a group activity challenge for the first time through to learners and staff competing at elite level. With over 40% of participants having additional learning needs, the Duathlon provides a fully inclusive approach to sport in FE.    

Mental Health Awareness Week 

The event will take place during Mental Health Awareness Week (13 – 19 May) on the theme of Movement: Moving more for our mental health, which is timely as this event is actively inclusive of all students, including those with additional learning needs.  

ColegauCymru Sport and Active Wellbeing Project Manager, Rob Baynham, said,    

“Now in its fourth year, and with over 400 competitors from colleges across Wales registered to take part, the ColegauCymru FE Multisport event represents a new direction for competitive sport and events in the FE sector. This format provides one of the few opportunities where learners and staff can compete alongside each other, from beginner through to competitive level.”    

 Head of Development for Welsh Triathlon, Amy Jenner, added,    

“At Welsh Triathlon our purpose is to develop a triathlon community that enhances the well-being of current and future generations in Wales, and we’re delighted to be supporting this event once again. The Duathlon offers a format for everyone and is a great example of how learners and staff can benefit from being active.”    

We are grateful for the continued support from Welsh Government, Coleg Sir Gâr, Welsh Triathlon, Welsh Cycling, Disability Sport Wales, AoC Sport and Carmarthenshire County Council, in delivering this event.  

With over 400 registrations from Bridgend College, Coleg Sir Gar, Coleg y Cymoedd, Gower College Swansea, NPTC Group of Colleges, Pembrokeshire College, The College Merthyr Tydfil and Walsall College, the event promises to be a success once again this year.
