BOURNES GREEN JUNIOR SCHOOL FUN RUN 2018

 

Wow!  This year’s fun run was absolutely wonderful!  The sun shone for us and it was a perfect way to spend a Saturday morning running along our beautiful seafront with our friends and family.  

Wow!  This year’s fun run was absolutely wonderful!  The sun shone for us and it was a perfect way to spend a Saturday morning running along our beautiful seafront with our friends and family.  The turn-out was superb with nearly 200 adults and children joining in the fun and making it one of the best fun run’s yet!

Our annual fun run starts at the Sealife Centre at 9am and makes its way along the coast, with marshals cheering them on, to Uncle Tom’s Cabin where the support crew gathers to welcome the runners after completing the course!  I was so impressed with the effort everybody put into the run this year, from the very young to the more mature!  A highlight for me is always seeing families coming together to take part in the run, especially when former pupils join in the fun and see how they fare against the current Bournes Green pupils.  This year, we also gave the children the option of running in fancy dress!  There were some fabulous costumes, I’m not sure how easy some of them were to run in though!  It definitely added an extra level of enjoyment to the supporters!

Everyone performed superbly and should be incredibly proud of themselves.  The run was won by Fred in Year 6, who retained his Champion Boy trophy, with Chloe in Year 4 taking the Champion Girl trophy for the first time -  definitely one to watch!  Superb performances!

Thank you so much to everyone who took part, we cannot do it without you! Also, a big thank you to those who marshalled the race or helped at the finishing line distributing medals, Mars Bars, bananas and the much-needed water.

All of the sponsor money is going towards to Swimming Pool fund and making our school even better!

A great performance Team BG!
