St Peter's Schools Fun Run & Walk

  • June 09, 2016 | John van den Aardweg

This past Sunday morning saw the PA organised St Peter’s Schools Fun Run & Walk hosted on the Prep Schools campus for the first time.

With just short of 700 participants, the event offered three distance options – 6,8, 2,5 and 1,5 km – with all three races incorporating some trail running / walking through the PWC Bike Park, followed by a meander through the campus. The Fun Run also doubled up as the second leg of the Schools’ Ironman series.

The event was about participation, fun and getting out for some family exercise on a chilly Sunday morning. It was brilliant to see so many pupils running their own Comrades (and even some parents!), albeit over a much shorter distance. The hallmarks of distance running were clearly evident – passion, determination, camaraderie, teamwork and good old St Peter’s grit!

Thanks to all the volunteers who made it possible, to the teachers who operated the water table and to the Boys Prep School Sports Department for their invaluable support. All in all, a very enjoyable and fun event.
