Mr Leavesley-Matthews - Marathon Update



Just a quick update, as I have finally completed my first half marathon and a huge thank you for all for the sponsors made on Parent Pay this week! 


A half marathon is a whopping 21km (the furthest I have ever managed to run), and was a mix of trail and road. With some Daft Punk in my ears, lots of water and a wooly hat, the run started at Wassel Woods. There was a steep incline to drop into Habberly Valley, then easy to the Rifle Range, all the way back up to Burlish Top, and finally, home along a muddy river toe-path! In total, the run took about 2 and a half hours and felt amazing, although I had some very achy legs!


This was a real milestone in the journey, but unfortunately, a half marathon is not the longest distance training run we will be doing, so please, please keep the sponsors coming in.


All of the money raised is going directly to the PTA and will be used to help develop the playground area for the children. Sponsorship could not be easier, either by visiting Parent Pay or visiting the school office and every penny counts.


More to come soon,


Mr Leavesley-Matthews
