About the Flight Centre Schools Triathlon

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!

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.
