Great North Run

You may have watched the Great North Run on Sunday where Kenenisa Bekele narrowly defeated Mo Farah in a thrilling sprint finish! Finishing a little bit behind the first 2 was our Chair and Vice Chair of Governors Neil Alderman(1:33) and Juliet McGillican. Mr Cowen also finished in just under 2 hours, even after pulling his calf muscle at 9 miles. If you are a parent reading this and you ran, we hope you had a good day and finished safely.

Also well done to all the children who took part in the Junior or Mini Great North Run on Saturday. The picture is below. A number of them can be recognised from the Rising Sun run!! Especially well done to Milly who finished 3rd overall in her age group!! Wow.
