Now Taking Entries - TESCO Great School Run

Registration is now open for schools wishing to take part in the Gateshead stage of the Tesco Great School Run.  Now in it's 3rd year in Gateshead, this has always been a well supported event with over 1000 pupils participating last year alone.

The event, which will take place at Saltwell Park on Tuesday 14th June 2011 (9:30-11:00am) is part of a series of high profile events taking place across the country over the next few months.  The run is part of a wider campaign designed to promote the benefits of physical activity and a healthy lifestyle.

Pupils from years 1-6 are eligible to participate in this 2k event which will see pupils run, jog or walk their way to the finish line.  There is no limit on numbers each school can enter and it represents an ideal opportunity for whole classes to come along, enjoy the atmosphere, cheer on class mates and participate.
