THE SCHOOL SPORTS DAY PARENTS RACE HAS NOTHING ON THIS.

 

Offering one last chance to represent your school team, sporty parents have been challenged by a group of GB medallists to show their kids that they have still got what it takes.

After six years of fundraising, generating £477K in direct donations to good causes, Legacy 300 have created the Sporty Parent Series, a programme of exclusive VIP experiences starting with three unique championships hosted by GB gold medallists encouraging sporty parents to fundraise for sport at their schools.

Starting with a rowing day in May 2019, and continuing in white water rafting and cycling races in autumn 2019, organisers are inviting parent associations to promote these events to encourage their local community to support school sport.

 

The series will then expand nationwide during 2019 and 2020 to include regional team events in hockey, netball  cricket, rugby and  football, each hosted by well known sports people giving sporty mums and dads the chance to represent their kids school in a unique competition whilst rubbing shoulders with sporting legends.

​In addition, if parents express enough interest, plans are also in place to enable individuals to compete in traditional mass participation running, triathlon, swimming and cycling challenges, all competing for their kids school within the Sporty Parents championship.

Cycling host GB gold medallist Lizzie Deignan was looking forward to being part of this unique series:

"GB Cyclists have already generated £330K in donations to good causes through hosting Legacy 300 events, and as a sporting parent of a pre-schooler myself, I am looking forward to seeing how much the nation's sporting parents can raise for school sport."

Rio rowing gold medallist Matt Gotrel was looking forward to seeing how the competitive mums and dads handle the day.

"This is a fun opportunity to get together with fellow parents have a couple of short races on the water, and I guess with a GB Rower in the boat they can always blame us if their boat loses. "

The kids are not to be left out, as parents can further support school sport by securing places on the regular Legacy 300 days for their sporty offspring to meet inspirational sporting women and men.

Full details of the events for both parents and their kids can be found via www.sportyparents.com or search #SportyParents on social media.
