DELT Shared Services Primary Schools Challenge 2020

Who’s up for the Challenge?

The DELT Shared Services Primary Schools Challenge helps to promote a healthy and active lifestyle amongst local school children. The event encourages pupils of all abilities to get involved in a 13-week programme, where children either complete 13.1 miles at their school or they complete 12.1 miles at their school and complete their final mile at the Britain’s Ocean City Half Marathon on Plymouth Hoe in front of thousands of spectators.

Pupils will cover a total of 13.1 miles over a period of 13 weeks promoting a gradual improvement in their running and stamina. All children taking part in the Schools Challenge will receive their very own Britain’s Ocean City Schools Challenge Half Marathon Medal, a quality drawstring goody bag and a t-shirt.

It’s easy to get involved, just follow these 3 steps…


To enter, sign up with the Schools Challenge Organiser at your school and select a t-shirt size. If your school is not involved please email Sian Richardson

The entry fee is £12 per child, which includes a t-shirt, goody bag and Schools Challenge medal.  All cheques should be made payable to the school.

Entry is free for adults taking part on the Plymouth Hoe as part of the school team.  The ratios of adults to children must be adhered to; 1:5 for KS1 children and 1:10 for KS2 children.  Schools must also include an additional 2 adults who must remain in the enclosure during the final mile.

All adults attending on the Hoe will need to have DBS clearance through their school and must have a Schools Challenge t-shirt; please bear this in mind when completing the school entry form. 

We are not able to offer more places for adults, as this reduces the number of places available to children.

The closing date for schools to submit their final entries is Friday 10th January 2020


You must complete a series of runs over set distances of ¼ mile, ½ mile, ¾ mile or 1 mile, which can be verified at your school.

By Sunday 17th May 2020, you will need to have completed 12.1 miles


On Sunday 17th May 2020, you will complete the final mile around Plymouth Hoe, crossing the same Start/Finish line as all of the Britain’s Ocean City Half Marathon runners!


During the week commencing 18th May 2020 you will complete your final mile at your school, along with the rest of your school team!
