Mini Marathon Event

Dear Parents and Carers,

Today we have launched a very exciting event that we have entered as a school!  We are going to be running the London 2.6 Mini-Marathon in aid of Make a Wish Foundation.

I am very lucky to be running London Marathon on Sunday 2nd October and I really wanted the children here at SMC to be part of the experience with me.  We have had a special launch assembly today and they are certainly up for the challenge.

Mr Prower is going to be putting on special running events over the next two weeks in school to enable the children to all achieve their personal goal of 2.6 miles.  As part of this we will all running our final section together as a community.

Running is such a passion for me and it is not about breaking records it’s about exercising outdoors and being part of something bigger.  My mantra is always to put one foot in front of the other and not fall over!

Please encourage your children to raise sponsorship of at least £1 for Make A Wish which we will collect over the next two weeks and to cheer each other on along the way.  We don’t mind if they run, walk or skip their way to their goal, it’s about doing something as a community together.

Many thanks in advance for your support our Mini-Marathoners!


Kind regards


Mrs Mulholland
