100-mile Challenge: Y13 surge up standings after day two
May 6, 2020

Year 13 moved into contention after day two 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.

After the staff pulled out to a commanding advantage on day one, the Upper Sixth Formers stepped up to the plate and clocked 42.22 miles to surge them into second spot.

This is thanks in no small part to a half-marathon run from Hockey Wales international Jacob Heaton-Rue. Staff still lead the way with a total of 51 miles, which puts them more than halfway to the target.

Year 12 now occupy third spot with 14.6 miles, with Year 7 in fourth after accumulating 12.8 miles so far. Year 8 are in fifth with 6.34 miles, with Year 9 in sixth spot on 4.5.

There has been nothing recorded so far from Year 10 And 11 over the first two days of the challenge, which was organised by Health and Wellbeing faculty staff and drew inspiration from Colonel Tom Moore’s incredible fundraising efforts for the National Health Service.
