15 Mile Challenge 2017

Every year that we complete the 15 Mile Challenge, we want to see more students and staff taking part and winning medals. This year, we had a total of 148 people achieve Bronze, Silver, Gold or Elite awards – that’s 8 more medals than last year!

101 students and staff got Bronze, 23 received Silver, 10 Gold and 14 students achieved the highest award for over 60 miles, Elite.

The winning forms for each year were:

7W1 – 322.5 miles
8C1 – 376.5 miles
9W2 – 515 miles
10B1 – 261 miles
11C1 – 169.5 miles

And the overall winning house this year was Warburton who beat second place Bromhead by over 200 miles with a grand total of 1842.5 miles!

Connor Marshall helped Warburton to victory by contributing 100 miles to the final total, an incredible achievement for which he received a personalised Manchester United shirt.

As a school we ran an amazing 6,622 miles which is the distance from Newark to Malaysia!

The P.E dedications for this year were awarded to Courtney Wood (Y7), Aaron Munro (Y8), Clarice Dixon (Y9), Curtis Longhurst (Y10) and Georgia Bryan (Y11).

Before the awards assembly, all the students that achieved Elite were invited to a reception with two Notts County footballers, Craig Westcarr and Lee Canoville. The students were able to ask them questions about the teams they have played for, their career highlights and which team has the best fans! There was also the opportunity for them to take photos with Craig and Lee, who presented them with their certificates and medals on stage in assembly.

Aquinas Education, who support the challenge kindly donated a bike for a prize draw for the Elite achievers and Aaron Munro was the lucky winner!
