One of the newest fundraising events to Lismullen school is the School Marathon Relay which is part of our Active School Flag programme. This event is about getting kids active and promoting a healthy active lifestyle.
The first event was back in 2017 and is now one in which each child gets excited about participating in. The name of the game is to run a full marathon 26 miles (42km) part of which will be run by every single child, and even the odd teacher, in a relay format using the school yard as a short distance loop which every child must complete.
The event is run by our friends at Fitter Younger whom provide official distance tracking and the official time keeping. The goal this year and every year to to beat last years marathon school time and to have fun while doing it.
EVENT DATE: Friday 19th October 2018
