Brooke Weston Road Runners are taking part in their first event this weekend; a six-mile run around Rockingham Speedway. The group formed after Miss Gorey and Mr Twamley went on training runs and completed the Birmingham half marathon.
Now more Sixth Formers and staff have joined and they have taken delivery of high visibility shirts to keep them safe while pounding the streets. A group of them will take part in the Brass Monkeys run, in aid of Lakelands Hospice this Sunday, the first in a series of fixtures.
Mr Twamley said: 'We're planning to continue previous fund-raising efforts for the Teenage Cancer Trust by running their 10K run in London in July. To build up our stamina for that we've got six more races planned, four 10Ks and two half marathons, all in the Midlands. Other staff and Sixth Form students are welcome to join us for our training runs on Wednesday nights from 17:00 to 18:00.'
