Olympic Opening Ceremony
Wealth of Health Olympic Marathon Challenge
As part of our Olympic studies and celebrations, it has been decided to offer pupils and parents the chance to take part in a Marathon Challenge. The challenge will take place between 25th May and 26th June and pupils are asked to complete the marathon distance of 26 miles, in stages, during this period.
The plan is, that everyone who reaches 25 miles by 26th June will then take part in a celebration last mile run, which will take place on the morning of 26th June before the PPS Olympic Games Closing Ceremony, in the afternoon.
The rules for the event are:
- Pupils and parents can take part and anyone involved will be given a distance tally sheet, which should be completed by pupils and parents after any distances are completed.
- Pupils and parents are asked to run any distances they cover and are also encouraged to keep pictures or a diary of their achievements. Those taking part are also asked to read up on the history of the marathon.
- Updated mileage sheets should be handed into class teachers by 22nd June for checking. Arrangements will then be finalised for the last mile celebrations.
- Pupils/parents who are taking part should complete the attached slip and return it to class teachers by Wednesday 23rd May. After this date tally sheets will be given out to those involved and a copy also placed on the school website.
