Road To Tokyo Challenge

After 12 weeks of competition – and over 22,600 miles covered – the Race to Tokyo Challenge came to an end with Vernon claiming top spot!

Arden picked up second place, Warren ended up in third and Nicholson finished fourth.

It was truly fantastic to see the engagement across the whole SGS community with pupils, staff and parents representing their Houses by either running, walking, cycling, swimming or rowing.

The challenge also inspired a number of pupils to take it to the next level and have their mileage go a good cause. One pupil clocked up 400 miles in June and raised a total of £900 for Alzheimer’s Research UK in memory of a family member.

Well done to everyone who took part!
