Over 150 girls from schools across the UK will descend upon Flaine, France on 29th & 30st January 2018 as they take part in two days of racing as part of the 59th British Schoolgirls’ Races.
The two-day event, which features students from over 35 schools, will welcome girls of all levels of ski racing – from those relatively new to racing, to some of Great Britain’s rising ski stars. Historically the British Schoolgirls’ Races has proved to be a breeding ground for young British talent, with Olympian Chemmy Alcott and Paralympic sight guide Charlotte Evans being previous competitors.
The event also plays a vital role in giving aspiring female racers the chance to be part of well-organised on snow races, which is important for growing confidence and giving the young racers valuable competitive experience.
The event has racers from a range of age groups, including under 14s, under 16s and under 18s. All age groups compete in GS and Slalom races, and there is also the chance for schools to go head to head in Parallel Slalom – the most exciting race of the two days.
Training day: Sunday 28th January 2018
Race days: Monday 29th and Tuesday 30th January 2018
