100-Mile Challenge: Staff lead the way after day one
May 5, 2020

Staff are leading the way after day one of Rydal Penrhos’ 100-mile Health and Wellbeing Challenge.

The challenge is to collectively complete 100 miles of exercise a week. This will be logged by teacher Sean Kitchen and the first year group to reach the target, wins!

Each pupil taking part is to record their mileage on whatever health app they choose during allocated exercise.

The Rydal Penrhos staff team have begun the challenge in fine fettle, clocking 45 miles after day one.

This includes contributions from Senior School head Sally-Ann Harding, Deputy Head Phil Sutton, Alun Brown, Sean Kitchen, Luke Adamson, Nicky Head and Sarah Seenan.

Year 12 are currently in second position thanks to a 7.7-mile effort from Lara Pyves, with Year 7 and 9 tied for third thanks to sterling 4.5-mile runs from Ben Sinfield and Kosi Iwobi.

Year 8 occupy fourth spot with a 1.5-mile effort from Isabel Stubbings. Nothing has yet been logged by Year 10, 11 or 13.

Daily results will be published to keep track, and anyone taking part should send their exercise information to Mr Kitchen via email at STKitchen@rydalpenrhos.com.
