…walk, jog, wheel or run…
The programme is aimed at 5-11 year olds but any school can take part in the event if they wish. Many of the suggested classroom activities can be adapted for use with any age, differentiation being by outcome rather than task.
Although we call the event a 'run', it is possible to participate in the Great School Run at any level of ability. Children, their families, and staff can walk the route, jog or run it, or get round using a mix of the three paces. Partnerships of able and less able-bodied children can also work together to achieve the goals of the event.
When you register for the Great School Run, you will be able to download a teachers' pack in order to help you organise your school’s own 2km fun run.
