EUROPEAN middle distance champion Helen Clitheroe was put through her paces by youngsters from Chesterfield in a ‘virtual’ running challenge.
Helen, who won the gold medal in the 3,000m at the European Indoor Championships, took part in Tesco’s Virtual Running Experience at the company’s Chesterfield store.
The aim was to promote the 2k Tesco Great School Run which takes place every year.
Teachers can register their school to take part by visiting www.greatschoolrun.org before next Friday.
Schools will receive a teachers’ pack including race numbers, posters and a guide to getting involved.
Helen said: “The Great School Run has helped millions of children become more active.”
