Great Abington Primary School

Abington 1 mile (1.6km) / 0.5 mile (0.8km) Pupil Run

We are very excited to announce the Abington mile (1.6 km) or Abington 0.5 mile (0.8 km) Pupil Run on October 22nd 2020. As a school community we are disappointed (but understand) that our annual Abington 10k and 2k Family Fun Run event cannot go ahead due to COVID-19 restrictions.


Our motivated pupils would like to show responsibility and take part this year in a pupil Run around the Recreation field and Cricket ground. As this is a school event there is no entry charge. To support the PTFA we are suggesting that our runners are sponsored and with COVID-19 in mind this is to be organised by each family. We have provided a simple spreadsheet for you to use to collate your sponsorship but you can use any paper / file you wish. Once you have a total please use the Google form below to inform us of the total raised.


The route is below: thank you to the Recreation committee and Abington cricket Club for their cooperation



Class 1 and Class 2 will run 1 lap (0.5 mile / 0.8 km)  - each class bubble is running separately 

Class 3, Class 4 and Class 5 will run 2 laps (1 mile / 1.6 km) - each class bubble is running separately


Please note: Apart from school staff and official marshals from the 10k Committee we please ask for no parent / carer supporters to attend this school event. We will be taking a picture of every runner and this will be available for you to have as a memento. Each runner will also receive a chipped card for timing, a certificate, piece of fruit and a chocolate brownie! Pupils will use their own water bottle and the school will be providing first aid support. If you have any questions please do contact the School Office.
