We just want to say the biggest thank you to all the families who took part in the London Marathon 2.6 miles challenge!! It was wonderful to see so many of you running and having fun together! Diolch!
On Sunday 4 October the Virgin Money London Marathon 2020, will be very different this year. It will feature the world’s best athletes racing on a looped course in St James’s Park live on the BBC, while 45,000 adults across the UK and all over the globe take part in a virtual event – running 26.2 miles, their way, between midnight and 23:59:59 BST, with thousands raising money for charity.
Birchgrove Primary school are going to be part of it!! We are going to join the Virgin MoneyGivingMini London Marathon by running 2.6 miles between Monday 28 SeptemberandFriday 9 October.
We would like as many families to get involved as possible, encouraging children tocompletethe 2.6 miles overtwodays,threedays,or longer – whatever works for you. Or some older children might be able to do the whole distance in one day!
Your children can wear these running numbers as they complete their 2.6 miles, just like the runners in the Virgin Money London Marathon.
We would love you to share your involvement by uploading a video clip of you running, jogging, walking to let us know you are taking part in the challenge. Videos to be uploaded to your class flipgrid pages :)
