Spirit of Belron Challenge Event launch

18 April 2016 

The 2016 Spirit of Belron Challenge Event will take place at Dorney Lake, Windsor, UK on Saturday 24 September. The event will see Belron employees, their friends and families, business partners and suppliers from around the world come together to take part in a triathlon, duathlon or fun run / walk to raise money for Afrika Tikkun.

This year we will be celebrating 15 years of swimming, cycling, running and walking for Afrika Tikkun. During this time we have raised €7.5 million and to continue our success, this year we want to make the event bigger, broader and better.

  • Bigger - we want to raise more money than ever before and our aim is to beat the 2015 fundraising total of last year.

  • Better - we want to make the event better than ever before and will be introducing a new event, the half Marathon. We are also bringing in a scootathon for children.   

  • Broader - we want to make it broader so that more people can participate.

You can find out more about the day in the Our Events sections. 

In 2015 we began using the term ‘Spirit of Belron Challenge’ to link all of our giving back activities around the world. The Spirit of Belron Challenge Event is part of this initiative. Last year over 10,000 employees across the business took part in Spirit of Belron Challenge donating €2.4m (€1.6m for local/national charities  and €800,000 for Afrika Tikkun). This was an incredible achievement but this year we want to make it bigger, better and broader across the Belron world.
