A huge well done to the Cranleigh Prep pupils who took part in the Flight Centre Schools Triathlon held at Cranleigh on 15 May 2022. The day was great fun and it was lovely to see such brilliant team work. 

This year, over 6,000 triathletes take part in the Schools Triathlon across 7 events. In total that is: 480km swam – equal to swimming the English channel 15 times, 6,912 km cycled – the same as cycling from London to Paris 15 times and 4,755.5 km ran – more than 113 marathons!

Our Triathletes have raised an incredible £ 18,662.72
for Restless Development. A special mention should go to your top three fundraisers: Thomas T, Lundy W and Honor and Rose H who went above and beyond with their fundraising and were our top fundraisers.

This year has been the biggest and most successful Schools Triathlon Series, not only because of how amazing and committed the participants have been, but because this year Restless Development was awarded the UK Aid Match appeal called ‘
Power Up’, meaning every pound that was donated or fundraised between the 7th of March and the 6th of June is doubled by the UK government. The match funding from the UK government will go towards helping more than 15,000 girls in Sierra Leone and around the world to claim their right to education. The project will work with teenage girls and women, schools, parents and communities to ensure girls and women can go to school, stay in school, and go on to have careers. This is all possible because of your support, THANK YOU.
