Josh’s Mini Marathon

Our Year 7 student Josh Blevins has enjoyed some great running success recently. Here he described his experience at the London mini marathon:

JB marathon medal

“The London mini marathon was a great experience. I ran as part of a team of 6 boys chosen from across the North East. We were competing against other teams from across the U.K. The race started at the 23 mile marker on the actual marathon course and set off at the exact same time as the marathon.

We set off on the race which was over 3 miles long. Starting at Old Billingsgate, we then crossed London Bridge, then all the way down past Upper Thames Street and on to Victoria Embankment. We then swung round opposite the London Eye down past Westminster and opposite the Houses of Parliament. We then ran all the way down to Buckingham Palace down to the finish line on the mall where there was thousands of screaming people and the sound of ‘Chariots of Fire’ playing in the background.

I finished in 26th position out of 300 others with a new P.B of 17:01 (for 3 miles) and team North East Finished in 3rd position. I will never forget this amazing experience and will look forward to try and train hard to get in the team again next year.”
