Restless Triathlon Royal Russell

Sport and fundraising are a winning combination. Hundreds of millions of pounds have been raised by individuals in their own personal challenges over the years. However, most major sporting charity events are aimed at adults. For younger people in schools there are few large-scale opportunities to raise money through sport. We are therefore working with several schools in the UK with the appropriate on-site facilities to host a triathlon, and are excited to be launching our inaugural event at Royal Russell on Sunday 23 April 2017.

Restless Triathlon is a chance for children from school years 3-13 to come together and compete in their own event. We aim to host 20 events across the UK within the next three years, with 10,000 young people taking part and raising £1 million per year, funds that will support the ambition and opportunities of young people less fortunate than themselves.

Restless Triathlon is a fun way for children and young people to be introduced to Triathlon. By hosting the swim in a pool, and keeping the bike section off road, pupils do not need any special equipment to enter, and the event can be held in a safe and secure environment within school grounds. Participating schools are encouraged to enter a range of abilities, from competitive teams, to those who want to have a fun day out with friends. This will mean Restless Triathlon becoming a major sporting event for all levels of competitor.

Restless Triathlon is backed by Restless Development, an international development charity that puts young people at the very heart of dealing with the issues that affect them, their communities, and their countries. The Restless Triathlon will help raise funds for Restless Development and the chosen charities of the host and participating schools.



This is an invitation event for schools, and if you would like to get your school involved, please email jim@restlessdevelopment.org.
