Prep Half Term 1km Running Challenge

Prep Inter House 1km Half Term Run

Dear Parents,

This half term we will be running the Interhouse 1KM running competition, which has become an annual event in our calendar. The aim is for the girls who would like to take part to run 1km as quickly as they can.

It would be lovely to see as many girls as possible from Reception to Year 6 taking part. The girls will earn 5HP for their entry.

I will also run my 1km as quickly as I can and if the girls beat my time, they can earn an extra 10HP. I will publish my time on twitter during the half term week and also inform the girls on our return.

Once the girls have completed their run, please either e-mail, WhatsApp or text me proof of their run, I will record this on my spreadsheet. (my work number is below)

I know some of the girls have smart watches and they can use these but if this isn’t possible then I will suggest using this website to measure out 1km from your front door. Sports route planner UK. Runners, walkers, cyclists – map your routes (

We do want pictures of the girls out running so please feel free to WhatsApp me on my work number; 07849088313 if you are happy for me to share their photograph on the School’s social media.

Prep Inter House 1km Half Term Run

Over the past 7 weeks the girls have been running for 2minutes at the start of every lesson and we have all seen a difference in their levels of fitness when playing hockey. We don’t want all this hard work to be lost over the half term break, so please do encourage your daughters to run/ swim/ cycle over the half term break.

Good Luck girls.  Run like the Wind!

Mrs Purgavie
