Roan Run - Eglish's First Marathon

26th Mar 2017

Saturday 3rd June is the date to keep free as our children, staff and school community will complete Eglish’s first ever Marathon! All children will participate in the relayed Marathon covering the full 26.2 miles of the world’s most famous long distance run. The event will take place in Pairc Chormaic with the last length of the run leading all of our children back to our school, where we will celebrate the achievement with some refreshments and fun activities. We will be asking all families to fill out at least one sponsorship card with all funds going towards our school to develop our facilities and resources (more details to follow). Each returned sponsorship card will also be entered into a draw for some fantastic prizes (to be announced in the near future). We will be issuing more details over the coming weeks but, until then, keep your diary free on the 3rd June and get training!!!


For the event, we hope that our children will each receive a commemorative t-shirt to wear on the day and to keep as a memento. We are also hoping to give every child and runner a medal at the finish-line along with a goody-bag. We are hoping that local businesses and/or families would sponsor these t-shirts etc. We would ensure that your business logo is placed on the t-shirt. We are also giving businesses the opportunity to sponsor water-stops and mile-markers on the track. If you are interested in sponsoring any part of the event, please contact any of our Parent Support Group members or myself at school by email: or phone: 02837548355.
