THHN Half Marathon Schools Challenge at the Torbay Half Marathon 2017

Sunday 25th June 2017 – 9am – Paignton Green


The Half Marathon Schools’ Challenge is for local primary school children aged 4 – 11 years old. Pupils will cover a total of 12 miles prior to race day at school, we suggest 1 mile a week, and then along with their teachers/supervising adults complete the final mile on the morning of the Torbay Half Marathon after the main runners have headed off to Torquay, they will run in front of hundreds of spectators around Paignton Green on part of the Torbay Half Marathon course. This is a great way for a child to participate in the excitement of the Half Marathon and enjoy the atmosphere of the day, and will bring much excitement as they cross the finish line, having completed 13 miles in total. If the children would like to raise sponsorship for THHN while taking part that would be fantastic.
