Sedgefield’s Go Run for Fun event took place on Friday 17th April at the Oakleaf Sports Complex in Newton Aycliffe. The Fun run inspired 100’s of children to run 1 mile and become more active. It was a fabulous morning, organised by Sedgefield School Sports partnership and the Great Run organisers. It was supported by a number of volunteers from Greenfield Community College’s Sport leadership academy and the Newton Aycliffe athletics club.
Special Guests included the Mayor of Newton Aycliffe and Chris Tomlinson, Olympic Long Jumper and World indoor silver medallist. Mascots included Adam Ord as Dart and Anna Cialis-Hodgson as trainer. Hares included Adam Lamb, Luis Longstaff, Steven Grimes and Joe Hind. Marshalls included 16 yr 7 Sports Leaders from Greenfield Community College.
Well done to everyone who took part, including Greenfield’s Sports Leaders and Aycliffe Village, Byerley Park, St Mary’s and Woodham Burn Primary schools from Newton Aycliffe. Thank you to the organisers for their excellent organisation which inspired so many of our young people.
