Fifteen Willis girls together with Mrs Stimson, Mrs Caiger-Smith and Mr Long braved cold and wet conditions to participate in the annual Green Park Challenge Run on 17 March.
Felicity Burton finished in 32nd position out of over 1,200, runners with Rosie Tapner and Tiffany Aldrich finishing soon after. Strong finishes from these three girls and the rest of the team meant that we were the best performing senior girls’ school on the day.
Special mention should be made of the outstanding fund raising efforts of Tiffany Aldrich, Felicity Burton and Amelia Wright who raised over £7,000 for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research through their running of the race. Congratulations are also due to Poppy Barrett-Fish who completed the 21 kilometre Reading half marathon held after the Green Park Challenge in a very impressive debut time of 2 hour 10 minutes.
