We would love schools to take part in our Rafiki Relay for Education! Students and teachers are of course welcome to enter Rafiki Relay for Education individually or in teams up to 5, following the main instructions on our main relay page. Wouldn’t it be fun however to enter as a team with all your classmates and compete between classes or indeed enter your whole school and compete against other schools!
In order to facilitate this, you need to follow the instructions below (please make sure to read the information on the main relay page as well).
Nominate a team leader, such as your form tutor for class entry or Head of PE for school entry.
The nominated team leader then completes the entry details on the main event page, as if entering as a single participant.
The team leader next completes the registration on our challenge platform rafikirelay.bigteamchallenge.com (using your relay challenge code received by e-mail after completing step 2 above – you will not be able to complete your registration without this).
Once your team (class or school) is created, the team leader needs to e-mail email@example.com a list of the team members, including names, number and sizes of t-shirts required, and fundraising options. This information is also required for medal distribution.
Your class/school can either set up a joint fundraising page / donate as a team, or as individuals!
Where a team/class has a joint fundraising page, it will be very helpful if the team leader could provide us with the names of all the students/teachers who have raised £10 each, to help us allocate the medals. In the absence of this, we will for the purpose of determining when thresholds are met for medals (rewarded at £10 fundraised per person) and also for prize draw entries (one entry for every £20 raised per participant), simply divide your total raised/donated by the number of participants in your group.
The main difference in participating as a school class or school vs standard teams of 5 entry, is that you will upload the team’s activities manually.
Simply collate the information from your participants and upload the team’s combined distances manually.
Here is a flyer for you to share with students/parents, guiding them to our Relay for Education event website and our social media, so they can get ready and start following! (editable flyer available) The parents and families of the students and staff are very welcome to enter teams as well, separately to the school orgainsed effort!
For your convenience we have also create a Google Docs folder for you to access all the schools material referenced above
Finally, we would LOVE to see your photos and for you to tag us in any social media posts!
