The 2 mile Challenge has been taking place over the last six weeks. All 27 junior girls have undertaken the challenge of walking, jogging or running the distance over lunch break every Tuesday. With only two Tuesdays remaining before the mid-term break the leader board is very close with Orla Little (3rd Year) in first place. She is closely followed by Lauren Browne (2nd Year) and Megan Deacon (3rd Year). The remaining two weeks could see many changes in the leader board. Many of the girls have decreased their time by up to eight minutes over the past few weeks and the greatest improver over the next two will have a great chance of pushing up the leader board into the top three.
Well done to Ms. O’ Callaghan for a great initiative. The 5th Year girls also deserve great credit. They have given up their lunchtime each week to steward the run and time the participants.
