Dear Parents,

It is always good fun but LAST YEAR AT LEAST ONE OF OUR PROPOSED TEAMS MISSED OUT SO PLEASE, PLEASE BE PROMPT: THE CLOSING DATE IS MONDAY 2nd DECEMBER.

 

About the Flight Centre Schools Triathlon

Children take part in teams of four to swim, cycle and run for charity! The triathlon is a fun way to introduce children to a new sport whilst also learning important fundraising skills and values. Since 2015, the Schools Triathlon has raised over £1million for Restless Development and over 60 other charities. Last year, 3,300 children raised an amazing £465,000!

Where? Bradfield College, Bradfield Reading RG7 6AU

 

When? Sunday 17th May 2020

 

ENTRY   Pupils must make a team of four and one parent must agree to make the entry into  the Bradfield Triathlon [On the page that will open up, press the 'Enter Now' box.]  Please ensure that you have the following information to hand: all participant names and parent/guardian contact email for each participant.

That parent is NOT financially liable for any of the other team members.

Who can enter? Anyone in school years 3-8

How much? There is no registration fee however each participant must fundraise a target of £100, with a minimum of £50 to take part.

How far? We encourage children with a range of abilities, from competitive teams to those who just want to have a fun day out with friends. Teams complete the course as a relay.
