Enter your school in an event that rewards participation!
Experience the buzz of taking part in the Ikano Bank Mini Marathon & Schools Challenge organised by Sweatshop Events as part of the Ikano Bank Robin Hood Marathon and Half Marathon in Nottingham on Sunday 24th September 2017. The event offers all ages and abilities the chance to walk, jog or run in a fun community 1.5 mile (2.5Km) race with parents, teachers, friends and siblings.
Each child participating will receive a FREE T-shirt and medal
This year the Ikano Bank Mini Marathon & Schools Challenge will once again be both chip timed and gun timed. Having a chip time means that each runner will have access to purchase race day photographs and be able to download a finisher's certificate with their individual timing. Please note that all school challenge results will be based on the runners gun time and not chip time.
