Couch to 5K Virtual Event-OPEN NOW

Morning to all

I have no doubt you are all looking forward to the midterm break and getting away from the laptop/screen for a while.

Our Couch to 5K Virtual Event will start from today and is open until Sunday Week, 21st February. We are asking for as many people as possible to partake in the event. It does not matter if you walk it, run it, or do a mixture of both. We are aiming to get as many members of the school community to participate as possible.

When completing your 5K, please be mindful of the current restrictions and please be careful where you run/walk. Wear high vis clothes and try completing the event in the safest location possible for you.

When you have completed your 5K, please send evidence of it to Mr Murphy to be entered in a draw to win a voucher for Elverys. You can email me or send me a message on Teams. Take a screenshot if recording on a phone, or a photograph of your watch etc. When sending evidence of the 5k, please include your full name and year group.

This event is also open to parents and anyone with a connection to the school. Please email evidence of the 5K to with your name and connection to the school.

It will be interesting to see which year group has the most participants by Sunday week!

The most important thing is to participate and compete against yourself.

I will update you all on numbers completing the event, the number of students from each year, the number of staff, parents etc. using the school App, Website and Facebook. Individuals or their times will not be named.

Best of luck to you all and stay safe.
