BGS was thrilled to host a popular mini triathlon created by, thanks to former pupils and Olympians, the Brownlee Brothers, who want to inspire the next generation of athletes.

More than 1000 children from 45 schools took part in The Brownlee Foundation’s Mini Triathlon, in the beautiful surroundings of Bradford Grammar School (BGS).

Almost 200 BGS Juniors participated and were handed their finisher medals by Keith and Cath Brownlee, parents of the Olympic triathletes Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, who are former pupils at the school.

BGS Junior School Headmistress, Kerry Howes, said: “It was fantastic to see our pupils take part in the triathlon alongside local schools and be inspired by the event. This is a popular part of our calendar and our pupils certainly gave it their all.”

Oliver Rogers, BGS Director of Sport said: “Sport at BGS is for everyone whatever their ability. It’s always a pleasure to welcome other local schools to get involved in this community event, build relationships and ultimately boost children’s mental and physical health.”

This fun event gave children the chance to give triathlon a ‘tri’, and inspired them to get more active. It’s organised by the Brownlee Foundation, which is committed to helping kids get active in any sport, not just triathlon and encourage them to participate regularly in sport.

The Brownlee Foundation said: “It has been great to return to Bradford Grammar School for another successful event. It is wonderful to see so many children taking part and our thanks go to Bradford Grammar School for their continued support.”
