Brownlee Foundation Medal Challenge


Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, Olympic triathletes, loved being active whilst they were growing up and still get so much enjoyment from swimming, cycling, running and triathlon.

The Brownlee Foundation was founded to inspire this enjoyment in the next generation, encouraging them to enjoy sport and lead an active lifestyle.

With the Foundation unable to run its usual events this year, we have created the Brownlee Foundation Medal Challenge for schools and children to get involved with.

This past year has brought about certain difficulties and consequently more children are becoming inactive, lacking motivation and potentially falling out of love with sport. The medal challenge is a great way to re-engage and motivate children to get active.

The Challenge

The medal challenge will take place during Summer Term 2 and the aim is for children to make a positive change with regard to their activity.

Each individual child should choose their own challenge suited to their ability (with the help of their teacher) and on completion of their challenge, they will be awarded their medal.

The emphasis of the medal challenge is to have fun and for children to do their personal best.

We hope that the challenges chosen will be as varied as possible. The main requirement is that it is a positive change and linked to activity.0

Possible challenges could include:

- trying a new sport
- increasing the current amount of activity done on a weekly basis
- setting a specific distance to complete
- walking, scooting or cycling to school instead of driving
- doing more activity outside rather than inside
- being more engaged (more attentive and listening in PE class or signing up to an after-school club for example)

Sticking to the same principles as our events, we want the challenge to be fun, inclusive and non-competitive.

The medal will recognise their personal achievement and be a reward for making that positive change.

The timing of the challenge can also be varied; you could get involved during a set day, week or across the half-term. You may want to focus on a different challenge each week of the half-term and award the medal at the end. Ultimately the medal challenge can be set to suit your school and pupils and the challenges chosen.

Medals will be £1 each and all money raised will come to the Brownlee Foundation helping us to continue running future events and weekly sessions.
