7X2 Run Across The Country - Thornhill School 7X2 Run Across The Country

Posted by Louise Meah at 11:27AM on 23 November 2017

Congratulations to all members of Mrs Richardson’s 7X2 PE group as collectively they have ran more than the equivalent distance from Sunderland to Whitehaven on the west coast of England.

During the past 3 weeks all year 7 pupils have experienced different forms of running training such as continuous, fartlek and interval all in connection with National Cross Country Week in November.

Miles have been recorded each week and plotted on a map from Sunderland to the west coast of Whitehaven. Altogether the group have ran more than 148 miles, 13 miles further than their target distance of 135 miles.

All pupils worked extremely hard in lessons and have definitely improved their cardiovascular fitness levels. Special mention to Kiona Meah who was the class leader in terms of miles covered.

Well done year 7, a great team effort!
