Restless Development Triathlon at Bradfield
Once again Bradfield College hosted another fantastic triathlon, the Knight Frank Schools Triathlon, in aid of Restless Development. Restless Development is a non-profit global agency that supports the collective power of young leaders to create a better world. Every year they train, mentor, nurture and connect thousands of young people to use their youth power and lead change.
It was a beautifully sunny day and the event was flooded with teams from Elstree who entered into the spirit of triathlon and swam, ran and cycled to raise money for this wonderful charity. Any money that each competitor raised over £50 is allocated to the charity of choice from each school, and this year Elstree have chosen the Charlie Waller Trust, a charity very close to Elstree.
There were three different age categories (Years 3-4, Years 5-6, Years 7-8), all with different start times and lengths of swimming/biking and running.
One of our Year 4 teams, ‘Thunderbolts’, was the top Elstree team and was ranked 15th place amongst ALL 75 participating teams! Well done Jashn, Gaby, Bertie and Alfie.
A huge thank you to all the team at Restless Development and Bradfield College for such an impeccably organised event. And well done to all our triathletes from Elstree (and their parents!) for giving up a sunny Sunday to take part and raise lots of much-needed funds for these wonderful charities.
