BOAKES TAKES THE TROPHY IN THE MEGA MARATHON CHALLENGE

04 March 2021  |  G Denison

The Mega Marathon House Challenge concluded last week. The month-long challenge encouraged students to increase the amount of physical activity they did during February, with a key focus on using this to improve students’ physical and mental well being. Tutor’s played their role by supporting students and collecting their scores each week. The final score and the grand totals are in:

Boakes: 4578 miles (174 marathons)
Chapman: 2103 miles (80 marathons)
Cowell: 3298 miles (125 marathons)
Radcliffe: 4491 miles (171 marathons)

It was a close run contest, but congratulations to Boakes House for covering the greatest combined distance and managing to overcome Radcliffe’s initial lead. Collectively, students covered a hugely impressive 14,470 miles (550 marathtons – approx.); we are all so proud of everyone who took part and hope you found it enjoyable. Although everyone certainly played their part, there were a few students who went the extra mile(s) and deserve to be recognised:

Noah (Y9 – Radcliffe House) 677 miles
Joe (Y11 – Radcliffe House) 260miles
Josh (Y9 – Radcliffe House) 205miles

A special mention also to Mr Myers’ tutor group, who covered a collective distance of 1773 miles (167 marathons).

While students were busy recording their distances, Northallerton School staff were doing the same. The staff managed to cover 4271 miles (163 marathons), with 43 staff taking part. A special mention must go to Mr Taylor, who somehow managed to find the time and the energy to cover an astonishing 616 miles during the month of February. Well done Mr Taylor!
