Browne Craine is excited to share that it will be supporting The Children’s Centre’s Annual Granite Mann Challenge next year. Taking place on Sunday 22nd September 2019 at Cringle, the Granite Mann Challenge is the only off road triathlon in the Isle of Man in which participants can take part in either as an individual or as a team. The Children’s Centre and Browne Craine have agreed a three year sponsorship which will see Browne Craine supporting the event until at least 2021.

Last September (2018), a Browne Craine ladies team consisting of Alex Catlow, Lynsey Smith and Amy Killip, took part in the Challenge and were the first ladies team to cross the finish line.

Browne Craine wanted to get involved and support the event because it helps raise money for a fantastic local charity and its staff regularly take part and enjoy the events which are organised throughout the year by The Children’s Centre. This year, Alex, Lynsey and Amy are taking part in the event again with one mission only, to go back and defend their title.
