Shake off Lockdown 2 by completing The Elmgreen School 3 Parks Challenge!

Elmgreen students, staff and families will run/walk/cycle/scoot round three of our lovely local parks in one weekend to shake off Lockdown 2 and together raise money for The Elmgreen School. If you want to take part simply choose three of Elmgreen's lovely local parks (e.g. Brockwell Park, Bel Air Park, Norwood Park, Streatham Common, and Dulwich Park) and then take a tour around all three in whatever way you like (you can run/walk/cycle/scoot etc ) during the weekend of 27th and 28th March 2021.You can do each park on its own or if you're feeling really energetic you can do all three at once! (Please do stick to government COVID 19 guidelines on exercise)

We're trying to raise at least £800 to fund fantastic new basketball posts for Elmgreen's outdoor sports court so please do get involved!

There's no need to register, just send in photos of you and your family with 6 of our 10 notable landmarks (there are 2 in each park - detailed map to follow). We will publish the best photos in the The Elmgreen School newsletter. Extra credit for anyone who manages to do all 5 parks!

If you want to take part (and are in a position to make a donation) we are suggesting a donation of £5 adult and £1 child to be made on this Givey page. But please join in even if you are unable to donate at this time - it will be great to see our school community exercising locally before we are hopefully allowed to travel further afield.

If you are unable to take part but still want to support us "THANK YOU!" Please leave your donation on this page (and a message to cheer us on!). If you're able to Gift aid your donation it will help us raise even more!

Shaking off Lockdown with The Elmgreen Fun Run 2020!

The Elmgreen Fun Run is virtual this year and will be running throughout October 2020. In this unusual Olympic year, Elmgreen will be travelling 5, 936 miles – the distance to the Olympic stadium in Tokyo! We’re asking students, staff and families to submit all their fitness efforts - total steps/ total runs or cycle distances during October to get us to the 5936 miles! If 170 people do 10,000 steps a day every day in October, we will get there and with the help of the runners and cyclists we might even get back!

We’re also holding a virtual race, so runners and joggers are also being invited to submit their best times for 1km or 5 km run in October with medals/points for the winners.

Money raised by this event will be donated to The Elmgreen School to widen participation in sport. We are aiming to raise £1500 this year. Previous Fun Runs have funded 2 outdoor table tennis tables and a new secure container for Duke of Edinburgh equipment.
