Shropshire sport students run a marathon for Children in Need
Around 20 students took part in the shuttle relay today (16th Nov) at the Oswestry Campus. The students came up with the idea of running a marathon between them during their lunch break whilst raising money for the fantastic charity. A total of 26.2 miles was covered between the students.
Liam McGrath Curriculum Area Leader for Sport explained, â€˜The students completed 26.2 miles between them in just 34 minutes! When students werenâ€™t running they were collecting donations from staff, students and visitors at the College for this very worthwhile cause.â€™
Danielle Hughes (photographed) commented, â€˜I thought the marathon relay was really good, but tiring! I personally completed 105 laps of the 20 metre course. Children in Need is such a great cause, I really enjoyed it.â€™
Liam added, â€˜We havenâ€™t finished fundraising yet though, the TNS Football Scholars will be taking part in a â€˜Cross Bar Challengeâ€™ at the Walford Campus on Friday lunch time. The event today has been great preparation for the students as they will be tackling Sport Relief next in March, which will be a much bigger event linked with local schools.â€™
