Flight Centre Schools Triathlon

Congratulations to team 'Chafyn Bros' who entered the Flight Centre Schools Triathlon at Marlborough and came first in the Years 5 – 6 category. 

The boys had to organise themselves from the word go. They chose the order in which they went in for the races, got their bikes organised, made sure their timing tag was on, etc.  The first event was in the pool. There were lots of teams of boys and girls in the Years 5-6 category and after a short wait they were put in a race against 7 other teams. They came an amazing first and completed a total of 400 meters in 7 minutes 45 seconds.

Next they moved on to the bikes where they zig zagged through the course of 1000m in a relay format (13 minutes 32 sec). Having deposited the bikes back in the transition area they lined up for their run of 750m again in a relay format (13 minutes 15 sec) but with a team finish. Out of 66 teams, they came first!

With their individual fund raising efforts and a cake sale held at the school, the boys have raised a total of £558 for the charity Restless Development.  Well done to Year 5 boys: Archie N, Tom C, Connor P and Hamish McN.
