Girls’ marathon effort on Stonyhurst’s Avenue

Twenty one Grammar girls (year 10) and their games’ teachers ran 104 miles up and down the Avenue on Saturday March 14th, raising almost £700 for  ‘Hospice at Home’. In 4 teams, they all ran 4 marathons collectively,  running  52.5 laps each. There was a great atmosphere of teamwork and fun as the girls ran the length of the Avenue (which is further than it looks!), dodging the odd Canada goose and stray rugby player.
