PUPILS from across Doncaster have been getting fit for the UK’s biggest-ever fun run.
Around 300 young runners and parents from Stone Hill, Pennine View, North Ridge and Coppice Special Schools completed a 2km run and talked about healthy eating as part of preparations for this year’s Tesco Great School Run.
The event is the UK’s biggest fun run involving more than 1.2 million children, from 4,900 schools, who are completing the run at various venues around the country between May 9 and July 22.
Now in its seventh year, the event encourages children and their parents to get fit and healthy through exercise and nutritious eating.
Glyn Davies, headteacher at Pennine View School, said: “The event has really captured the children’s imagination, highlighting the importance of exercise and healthy eating and also enabling them to engage with other schoolchildren from around the area.”
The event is supported by stars including world record holder Colin Jackson.
