Kings Worthy Primary School

Golden Mile

With support from Winchester City Council, we've been taking part in the Golden Mile since 2016, and aiming to run/jog a mile a few times each week.  Each child's progress is logged and personalised certificate is awarded when the children reach the 10, 25, 50, 75, 100 and 150 milestones.  Since September 2017, many children have reached 50 miles and several have achieved their 150 mile t-shirt - well done everyone!

December 2017:  The first challenge against Stanmore has now been completed. We won!
Stanmore: 1689 miles, Kings Worthy: 3101 miles - well done everyone!

February 2018: We won the Golden Mile School of the Year award at the Winchester District Sports Awards 2017 for walking/jogging/running over 16000 miles from January to July 2017. 

The award was presented by guest speaker Simon Harmer - we also discovered he was an ex-Kings Worthy pupil!

July 2018 - The Golden Mile has been a huge success this year with the children running 24,348 miles during 2017/18, just 553 short of running round the world! Well done everyone!
