We are launching the ‘Rossendale Virtual Mile’ from 18th May-29th May. This week is historically our biggest event, attracting over 500 pupils from all schools in the area for the School Cross Country Championships. We would love for you and your family to get involved! This is a Rossendale-wide, mass-participation event that anyone of any age or ability can take part in.
Throughout the two weeks, we will be encouraging everyone to get out and run/walk (wheelchair users encouraged) a mile, whilst maintaining social distancing. Please remember to send in your best time as well. Everyone that enters will receive a certificate. The schools with the most entries will be crowned the overall winners, as well as this there will be prizes for individual categories.
For more information on routes and how to record your times, please see the document below.
Good luck everyone!
