The East Lancs Hospice 10k run took place on Sunday 15th January, and an Oakhill team braved the mud to take on the challenge, and to raise money for this worthy cause. The route was mostly off road and owing to the amount of rain that fell overnight and during the race, the team faced an ankle deep challenge!
Our team of four was made up of Miss Rollason, Mr. Lacy, Mr. Peel and Tyler Phillips from Year 10 representing the pupils from senior running club. Tyler took on his first ever 10k and competitive race, and achieved an excellent time of 57 minutes. He was the youngest competitor to take part out of nearly 500 runners!
The staff also did well with Mr. Lacy beating his best estimate at 60 minutes. Miss Rollason came 10th in her category with 56 minutes, and Mr. Peel 4th in his category with 43 minutes. Well done everyone – we all look forward to the next running challenge.
