Working with the Plymouth School Sports Partnership, we have launched the DELT Shared Services Schools Challenge!
All children in Plymouth can take part in this 13-mile running challenge which can be completed over 13 weeks. Children will be able to take part in the activity in their school setting or at home, logging hours on their ‘Schools Challenge Log’.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, we are unable to have the final mile event on Plymouth Hoe alongside the Half Marathon. Whilst this is very disappointing news, we are dedicated to providing this highly valued opportunity for children in 2021, but also working really hard to ensure the opportunity exists in the future and we need your support.
Children can start this challenge at home as soon as they have signed up and track their progress using the School Challenge Log.
We hope that children, schools, parents, carers and the wider community will embrace this opportunity at a time when physical activity and wellbeing has never been so important. COVID-19 is a virus that puts the physically vulnerable at risk and attacks the airway and respiratory system, which is why the upkeep and maintenance of activity that promotes respiratory health, weight management and physical health is essential.
The entry deadline for the DELT Shared Services Schools Challenge has now passed and we are longer able to accept any new entries.
UPDATE MAY 2021
Once children have completed the DELT Shared Services Schools Challenge 2021, there is no need for their completed logs or any evidence to be sent in to Redrok Events or the Plymouth School Sports Partnership.
If you chose for your children’s medal & water bottle to be sent to your child’s school, note that the school may ask to see their completed logs.
We are anticipating the deliveries of medals & water bottles to schools will be completed as soon as possible after the Whitsun half term. Schools will be free to decide how and when best to award these to their children.
If you opted for the medal & water bottle to be sent to you directly, these will be posted out during the second week of June.
We really hope that everyone has enjoyed taking part in this challenge! Don’t forget to share pictures of your progress with us on social media @PlymouthSSP using the hashtag #DELTSchoolsChallenge2021
