Mini Marathon

On the day before the TCS London Marathon, Northwood pupils had the chance to experience the magic of the finish line to this iconic London event by entering the ‘Mini-Marathon’ aimed at giving school children a taster of a competitive running event. About ten Senior pupils took part in the 2.6k race whilst 50 Juniors, and siblings, took part in the one mile race. Both courses started from the Horseguards’ Parade, passed Buckingham Palace and finished on the famous Mall. It gave our students a taste of the exhilarating feeling felt by thousands who complete the grueling 26.2 mile course. Maybe in years to come some of them will enter the big race!
