Friendship run

The aim of this event is to foster social connections and promote enjoyment and wellbeing. 

Children love being outside with their friends, so the idea of the Friendship Run is to give them extra motivation to be active by encouraging them to take on a running challenge with friends. Every child in our school has been taking part in the 'friendship run', they are challenged to run for ten minutes a day. 

"The run is good because I like running with my friends."- Year 1 child

"The friendship run is exhausting, but I am excited to see how far I can run!"- Year 4 child

"This running has supported my confidence because we keep doing it, one day I would like to run a marathon!"- Year 5 child.

"The running has been a challenge, I have been racing against myself to beat my previous score!"- Year 5 child

"The run is fun because it keeps you fit and helps my brain to relax."- Year 6 child
