Sport Relief Marathon Spring 16

On Friday 18th March, we ran a full marathon - 26.2 miles (42.195km). We shared the distance out between all of our pupils (178 of them). Each child ran just less than 250m each. The marathon was completed in 2 hours, 37 minutes and 49 seconds. There was a great buzz in the front yard with children encouraging each other. Pupils wore their favourite sports tops to complete their share of the distance. We made over £160 from the event – all for sport relief. Well done everyone!
