Run Reigate was a record breaking event……
Did you know that a record 4500 runners completed Run Reigate this year?
As part of this, there were 1200 children who completed the cumulative half marathon (where the children ran a total of twelve miles cumulatively be-tween April and September, with a grand finale of a 1.1 mile kids race on race day). This meant they had completed the full 13.1 miles of a half marathon. This is the first time this event has been run in the UK and it was a sell-out. One hundred and seventy schools took part and Reigate St Mary’s had around 150 pupils and former pupils running.
Mr Kelly came to assembly on Monday to congratulate our medal design winner Gage W and all the children who ran so fantastically on Race Day. Gage’s fabulous medal was received by all 4500 participants.
Next year, Run Reigate will grow significantly and we look forward to another large number of our pupils running.
