Equity are sponsoring the British School Girl and Boy Races

As the UK’s leading provider of school ski trips, at Equity we are passionate about the development of young people in sports.

We’re proud to be sponsoring both the British School Boy Races and the British School Girl Races to help our young skiers achieve their dreams.

Schools from across the UK nominate teams to compete in the races which are to be held at the end of January. The British School Boy Races will take place in Wengen, Switzerland and the British School Girl Races in Flaine, France.


Equity Ambassador and four-time Olympian Chemmy Alcott competed with her school at the British School Girl Races and says:

"The first year at the British School Girl Races was one of my first big races competing as a team. By this point I had raced successfully many times as an individual but sharing the responsibility for our school’s ski team was both thrilling and nerve wrecking in equal measures. I remember being unsure of what tactics to adopt - would I all out charge and go for my best times or would I ski within myself and safely to make sure we got a finish for the team."

Working with Chemmy we will be presenting an EDGE award at both of the races. This framework of awards was developed to acknowledge the life skills a young person can achieve through skiing. You can find out more about the Equity EDGE Awards - click here >>

"Extending this theme of learning invaluable life skills through sport, I helped create the Edge Awards with Equity to celebrate these values. And now with Equity becoming a supporter of the BSR races for the 2017 races the circle of the power of sport is complete."

We wish all participants in the races the best of luck and look forward to cheering for them at the end of this month on the slopes!
