Hello 360 members!
What fabulous weather we have had so far this summer. It’s been lovely seeing so many people training outside for a change.
Last Sunday we held our second Mud Run for the SMA Trust which was again a huge success. Last year we had 120 runners take on our course and this year it was nearly 170! The sun shone, the runners did us proud (and got very muddy) and a great time was had by all.
Thanks to everyone who helped us put on such a great event in particular Deb & Abbi James, Maddie Tracey, Georgie Badham, Anna Lincoln, Bella Righton, Katherine and Wiggy Righton, Dean Jones, and Blockley Friends of the School for providing refreshments. Figures in so far show the school made around £500 and SMA circa £2800 so all in all a pretty good day!
On the 28th June our eager eleven cyclists set off from Kinsale near Cork to cycle an epic 240 miles to Dublin over 3 days. It was again a huge success with everyone arriving with a big smile on the face (although in a few cases that may have been a grimace from being a little sore ‘downstairs’). Tim already has grand plans for our 2018 trip so watch this space. In the meantime, see below for some events to keep your legs moving.
- Endurance Games
Sadly we have had to cancel this event due to a lack of teams. Thanks to those who did come forward.
