Every year, Year 5 and 6 are lucky enough to take part in the Gateshead School Sports Partnership’s Go Run For Fun at Saltwell Park.
This year, over 5000 pupils took part. We were even entertained by the Metro Gnomes while we waited for our warm up!
As well as entering our fabulous elite runners, pictured below raring to go at the start line, every child in UKS2 completed the 1 mile run around the park.
Behaviour was excellent and everyone had a fantastic day. Our Daily Mile training has definitely paid off as we were so speedy it was difficult to catch us on camera. Among runners from other schools, here are two of our are elite runners, Lee and Ryan, approaching the final stretch!
It was fun and it was challenging, but we all had a great time! Check out how proud Year 6 Ash are of their achievement after the race! Well done, Team West Lane!
