Courtney Runs to Rome

11th May 2018

Thank you

Thank you again to everyone who supported the Courtney K last week whether you came to the event, washed the paint splattered clothes afterwards or helped collect sponsorship money.  We were absolutely overwhelmed by how every single child embraced the event, by how far they ran and most importantly by how much fun they had.  It was a brilliant reminder of how amazing all our children are and how much potential they all have…


We have now had a chance to add up how far everyone ran.   It is really quite staggering.  Each class ran:

                                                              Equivalent Distance as the crow flies:

Reception                   107 km                     Bristol to Winchester

Year 1                        202 km                        Bristol to Stanstead

Year 2                        202 km                        Bristol to the Eden Project

Year 3                        256 km                        Bristol to Aintree, Liverpool

Year 4                        259 km                        Bristol to Lands’ End

Year 5                        230 km                        Bristol to Old Trafford, Manchester

Year 6                        288 km                        Bristol to the white cliffs of Dover

The total distance run by all staff and pupils was a staggering 1,627 km which is the equivalent distance of to Rome and a little bit beyond (as the crow flies).   Astounding!

The top 3 houses who covered the most distance per pupil were:

Hedgehogs       9.38 km per pupil!!!

Deer                8.34 km per pupil

Badger             8.31km per pupil
