Festive Fun Run Thursday – AM
December 10, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Durham & Chester-le-Street School Sport Partnership (SSP) would like to invite your school to take part in our 2020 Festive Fun Run Event this winter.
The SSP Competition team will come into your school on your chosen date and time and set up a course in your school grounds. Then each class (one at a time for approximately 15minutes) will have the opportunity to complete the course in their chosen festive fancy dress. This could be something as simple as a Santa hat, or something more extravagant such a reindeer onesie (completely down to the individual)! The SSP Competition team will be on hand to organise the event proceedings including a warm-up, the course start and finish, and Christmas music. Every child will receive a certificate for participating.
The children can choose to run, or jog the course, and schools may choose to utilise the event to raise funds for the school or a chosen charity if they wish to. I have attached two different draft letters that schools may adapt to suit their individualised needs and send home to parents/guardians to inform them that the school is having a ‘Festive Fun.
The emphasis of this event is very much on fun and participation, it would be great to get teachers, TAs, Head Teachers, Office staff, Lunchtime staff involved too!
Designated Half Day ‘Festive Fun Run’ Event slots are now available for schools to book.
*Please note due to the time of year, all participants (children & staff) should be advised to wear weather appropriate clothing for the event and to bring a change of footwear. The event will adhere to all procedures outlined in our School Sport Partnership Risk Assessment to ensure it is ‘Covid Secure’
In light of the challenges faced in 2020 we hope by offering the opportunity to access this type of event will help to support schools to provide a fun, festive, and active way for children to end the Autumn Term!!
