Redcar Academy’s second Race at Your Place was held on June 23rd, and proved to be even better than last years.
Over 50 students, staff and parents attended the event, and ran the 5km ‘tough-mudder’ inspired track which was set up by the PE staff. It was amazing to see participants working their way round the course some in fancy dress, two dribbling a football and manouvering through the slalam poles and pivoting elegantly over the vaults. Everyone was very supportive and encourgaed each other to finish – students encouraged staff, and older brothers assisted younger siblings. After two full laps, cakes were on sale for necessary re-fuelling and a tombola was available with loads of prizes to be won. All participants received a medal.
Gary Barlow even made a guest appearance from his busy schedule, along with some Y11’s who found this a relaxing challenge after their exams.
So far we have raised over £240 for Cancer Research and are still waiting for sponsorship money to be brought in. Look out for pictures in the Gazette.
Well done to Cameron Park, who won overall and Mr Smith who was a very graceful second….not that it’s a competition – everyone who took part is a winner in our eyes!
Well done and thank you to all involved in your various roles and for supporting this event…we look forward to seeing you again at next years Race at Your Place.
