Active Non-Competitive Running Initiative

This initiative proved successful in our school. We began our running challenge in March 2019 and have been doing it everyday. Weather didn’t stop our efforts! We used our walking track for this initiative, running ten laps or  1 km  each day per classroom. This equated to 3km a day and 15km per week! Our challenge was to complete 60km in total, within the space of 4 weeks. We tried to do our running after lunch and this kept us awake and alert to complete our afternoon’s work. Before and after our run our Active Leaders lead some warm-up and cool-down activities. The children really enjoyed this initiative and we still get the children out for a jog as part of our active breaks!
