During May, 16 boarders and staff have taken up the challenge to run, or walk, the equivalent of a marathon.
For some such as Mr Goffe who completed the Manchester marathon over Easter this will be ‘a walk in the park’ while for others it will be more of a challenge. Whatever category people come into it is a great way of encouraging people to get out and exercise especially students who are revising hard at the moment.
Inevitably it has also created a competitive edge amongst some especially since Miss Johnson put up a chart for everyone to track their progress. So while coming first is not, in theory, the primary aim it will be interesting to see who is determined to cross the finishing line first.
Miss Johnson was out early this morning completing 6km!!!!!!
