Mini London Marathon

Mini London Marathon This October, as a school, we’ve signed up to take part in the TCS Mini London Marathon, in aid of the British Heart Foundation. The TCS Mini London Marathon is all about inspiring children of all ages and abilities to be physically active. Regular exercise has a positive impact on children’s physical health and mental wellbeing and can help start a habit that stays with them for the rest of their lives. Everyone feels happier after they’ve been for a run! The National challenge is for children to run, jog, walk or wheel 2.6 miles in their school between Monday 26 September and Friday 21 October – around the time of the TCS London Marathon on Sunday 2 October 2022. Last year, more than 500,000 children were registered to take part in the event, with schools from every region of the UK joining the fun. Some classes may decide to do the whole distance in one go, or some classes may wish to break it up into smaller chunks (such as Daily Miles) to complete 2.6 miles before the half term holiday. It’s completely up to each class how they choose to take part. Class teachers will confirm which option their class have chosen ?. One of our school parents has asked us to take part in the TCS Mini London Marathon as she’s taking part in the adult London Marathon (huge best of luck to her!) and raising money for the British Heart Foundation. Therefore, we’ve also set up a JustGiving page as a school for the British Heart Foundation, so that the children can raise money for the same charity (link below). We know how generous our Cookridge Holy Trinity parents have been in supporting us in charity events such as this in the past, so many thanks in advance for your support on this occasion too.
