WOW! What a day Friday was, even though I left Dunorlan Park completely exhausted, hungry and colourful, the day was totally worth it! Myself and Hannah were still at the park at 6.15pm sweeping up the colour powder………nightmare!!
I just want to thank you all for attending the day and sticking with it throughout the hot weather. You were all fantastic.
I also want to thank every volunteer, parent helper, young leader and teacher for thoroughly supporting the SSP team and the Run or Dye event staff throughout this event. It’s great to have the support of the schools at such a chaotic time and I can’t put into words the appreciation I have for you..
I have had nothing but positive comments from schools, teachers and parents which does mean a great deal to myself and the team. Please send me your comments/feedback and any action points that you think is important as we will be running this event next year for our member schools and even though the pilot event was a success, we can go bigger and better.
If your pupils and parents enjoyed the event send them down to the Penshurst Place Run or Dye on July 1st. I will be commentating and on the microphone so you may even get a shout out if I spot you in the crowd! Sign up here http://runordye.co.uk/enter
We have pictures from the event and we will be sifting through them to pick out some to send on, attached is just a sneak peak one!
A massive thankyou also to Dunorlan Park for letting us host there…………….let’s hope we can do that again next year!
Unfortunately- amidst the excitement/colour and chaos I couldn’t write down every finishing place.
Some of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishes in many of the races I do believe came from Claremont, St Matthews, St Johns, Woodlands and Stocks Green.
It would be great to know exactly who finished where, so if you can remember then please drop myself or Hannah an email and we can put this into our next News Letter.
We hope you enjoyed getting thoroughly Colour Dashed,
Director – School Sports Partnership
