We were thrilled to have over 100 enthusiastic first year students from St. Colmcilles Community School in Knocklyon on hand to launch “GloHealth School Mile Challenge” on Wednesday 15th of October in partnership with Athletics Ireland and the Irish Schools Athletic Association.
Get Moving Get Active!
The School Mile Challenge promotes running as a fun fitness activity in secondary schools across the country. The challenge gives students an opportunity to try out recreational participation in sport. The challenge is open to everyone, with pupils either running, jogging or walking the manageable one mile distance.
Why Not Get Involved!
Every school that gets involved will organise the event to take place during a school day. Every pupil’s time will be accurately recorded and graded to put participants into different categories. Students will be rewarded with a colour coded GloHealth wrist band that correlates to the time they ran. Contact Anthony White on 01 8669933 if your school would like to take part in the challenge.
Don’t forget we give €30 cash back for your child’s sports club membership on our Family & Kids’ Health package.
