Sunderland city’s 10k and half marathon runs took place on Sunday May 7th. Once again we were delighted to provide a team of 22 volunteers to assist with this community event. Pupils involved helped to distribute water to athletes, present medals and hand out t-shirts to the thousands of runners. One of our volunteers actually presented Paula Radcliffe, (world marathon record holder) with her medal together with Aly Dixon (former Thornhill pupil) who herself will represent Great Britain in this summer’s world championships.
All of our pupils worked extremely hard and were great ambassadors for Thornhill.
