Cranleigh School hosts 1,000 young triathletes

Posted on 21st May 2024 in School News, Charity and community work, Fundraising, Sport

One thousand children came together at Cranleigh School to take part in the Knight Frank Schools Triathlon, the UK’s largest fundraising event for children. In teams of four, they swam, cycled and ran their hearts out and have so far raised over £100,887 for Restless Development and numerous other charities chosen by the participating schools. It is a truly inspiring story of local children supporting young leaders around the world.

Cranleigh has hosted the event since 2017. It is truly a community centred day, with local businesses and over 2,000 attendees coming together for a feel-good event. Generous volunteers and Cranleigh pupils kindly gave up their Sunday to ensure the event ran smoothly.

Lots of inspiring stories came out on the day including 'The Cheery Cheerios' who were top fundraisers for the second year running. Eshaal, Clea, Lola and Margot raised an incredible £1,734 by selling homemade bracelets and cakes and even set themselves a netball scoring challenge to raise some extra money.

This is a national series organised by global youth charity, Restless Development. This year 10,000 pupils will be taking part to raise over £1 million; which will help to support over 100 charities. Thanks to the event sponsors, Knight Frank, Bentley Motors and Neilson Beach Holidays the much needed funds raised will go directly to charity.

The Knight Frank Schools Triathlon is an event which captures the determination, power and compassion of young people. See you there next year!
