Fancy competing against other classes from around the country in a brand new national competition? At The School Run, we are delighted to announce details of our Virtual Competition - Summer 2021 for schools and groups.
This competition is perfect to enter during a time with inter and intra school sports competitions are difficult due to the ongoing pandemic.
Our competition is a straightforward but motivating concept. We set your class/group the following three challenges:
- Shuttle Run
- Throw, Clap and Catch Challenge
- Jumping Coordination Challenge
These challenges require very little equipment or space and challenges can be slightly adapted for infant children so to make them accessible by all and completely inclusive.
Each pupil will earn points for their class based on their performance/ability in the above challenges. These points are then combined with others in the class/group giving an overall average score which is then compared to other classes nationally. The class/group in age year group with the highest average score is crowned the overall winner at the end of the competition. The winning class will receive a prestigious trophy engraved with the school/class name on it.
It's not all about winning though and instead more about children taking part in physical activity, promoting healthy lifestyles and competing against other schools from all over the country. During the competition window, you can practise the events as little or as often as you want in order to prepare the children.
