Isaac Newton Marathon19 challenge!!


24th April 2020

We know how hard it is for so many of us to not be together as a school community. So we have decided to set a school-wide challenge! Can we complete 19 marathons as a school over a 12 hour period??
This will take place on Thursday 30th April between 8am-8pm. Everyone can get involved, parents, children & staff. All you need to do is measure how far each of you have travelled on foot, whether it’s running or walking. You can include your daily exercise within this but you can also get lots of miles up by doing some running or walking in your own home! Once you’ve completed your exercise send an email stating how far each of you have travelled to:
We’d love to see all your pictures/videos of you during the challenge, the more the better! Remember to not make your videos too long otherwise you may not be able to send them via email. We will update the school website/fb page throughout the day, so any images you send will be sent with permission for them to be shared. We have set a target of 19 marathons which is nearly 500 miles!! To encourage you to do the challenge within your homes, we have listed a variety of games/activities that can do. These can be found on the school website using the following link:
If you are completing this challenge during your recommended exercise then please make sure you are adhering to government guidelines:
  • Only one form of exercise a day outside of your home, for example a run or walk, alone (if you are an adult) or with members of your household.
  • Keep 2 metres apart from anyone not in your household.
We’d love to see as many of you as possible joining in. We may not be able to be together, but we are hoping this will bring us together in a virtual way!!
