Thanks to our generous sponsors Islington Square.
Run Thornhill Run, our annual fitness fundraiser, is back and we're not letting Covid 19 get in the way.
Help us reach our fundraising target of £12,000 to keep Thornhill's Enrichment programme running for another year.
How do you do that? We want you to run, walk or skip 2k over the weekend 27th/28th June.
First, register on our eventbrite page so we know you are taking part
Then set up your sponsorship page at Virgin Money Giving and let all your friends and family know you are running.
It's a great way for people to support the school that means so much to all of our children. If everyone gives just a little, we can raise a lot.
You can run anywhere, even on the spot in your living room or back garden, it still counts!
But here are some distances to help you track your runs in our local parks:
2k is 2600 steps on the spot
2k is 6 laps of Thornhill Park
2k is 8 laps of Arundel Park on the outer edge
2k is 3 laps of Highbury Fields, the lower field
2k is 3 laps of Caledonian/Market Road Park, the outer edge
2k is 10 laps of Barnsbury Square
2k is 4 laps of the green around Paradise park
Follow us on Instagram for brilliant warm-up routines and great work-out suggestions for kids and grown-ups from our run coach and all round inspiration Elizabeth Sandles @run.kidsrun.
