Einstein House charity marathon

 

On Friday 18th March, Einstein House held a charity marathon which raised an impressive £750! The funds will be split between supporting those affected by the crisis in the Ukraine, and will also go to ‘I Can and I Am’, a charity whose transition work with Year 9 at the start of the academic year was outstanding.


Over 100 runners took part in the challenge on the College’s top field, working in teams of three or four to cover around 80 laps between them (equating to 26 miles).


Congratulations to everyone who participated. Special mentions must go to Asterix Porter for running over 20 laps, Dr Smith for clocking up the majority of the staff laps, and Matthew Willis for completing the marathon all in one go!


Fancy dress was encouraged – banana heads, a unicorn and a chick were just some of the costumes seen on the day! The award for best dressed runners goes to Freddie Corp and Adam Hancock for their inflatable dinosaurs.


Thank you to the volunteers who took care of timekeeping, hydration, marshalling and the cake sale during this truly memorable event.
