Organising Committee with Chairperson Sarah Darker

 

A committee of Staff, Fifth Years and Second Years organised this event.   The route took in 6.2km of the College grounds and the Ring Road.  53 of the Transition Year pupils stewarded the event with their responsibilities including on campus traffic, stewarding along the route and providing well-earned water afterwards to the participants.  The event started with a warm-up lead by teachers Jeff Carter and David Lowry who set the tone for a fun-filled afternoon.

The run was led by Leah Lyons member of the Irish Ladies Rugby team who was presented with flowers and a book ‘Where Swift and Berkley Learnt: A History of Kilkenny College”.

First across the line was TY student Luke Thompson in a great time of 22 minutes and 54 seconds, followed closely by Second Year’s Charlie Hackett.  The first girl across the line was Fifth Year’s Maria Cairns and hot on her heels was TY Co-ordinator Richard Willis.

But the day was about far more than times!  As a whole-school project there was great anticipation and excitement throughout the school. This event allowed each person to participate at their own pace and enjoy the afternoon out in the fresh air.  The TY stewards provided great encouragement along the route and a huge welcome awaited each and every person who crossed the line.  The comradery across years and between staff and pupils was wonderful.  The event is something that most of the Kilkenny College community will remember for a long time!  

As well as the benefit to each person’s Wellbeing the event raised just over €2000 for the nominated charity of Pieta House.
