The Run a Mile Club - The Half Marathon Schools' Challenge

Our Run a Mile Club finally started this Thursday (7th March) after being snowed off last week!  We are running this club in conjunction with the Torbay Holiday Helpers Network.  Find out a little more about this challenge below.


The Half Marathon Schools’ Challenge is for local primary school children aged 4 – 11 years old. Pupils will cover a total of 12 miles prior to race day at school, we suggest 1 mile a week, and then along with their teachers/supervising adults complete the final mile on the morning of the Torbay Half Marathon after the main runners have headed off to Torquay, they will run in front of hundreds of spectators around Paignton Green on part of the Torbay Half Marathon course. This is a great way for a child to participate in the excitement of the Half Marathon and enjoy the atmosphere of the day, and will bring much excitement as they cross the finish line, having completed 13 miles in total.
