Miah runs the Virtual New York Marathon

Congratulations to Miah Blackburn in year 11 and her father Ric who completed the Virtual New York City Marathon on Saturday 24th October. Swapping views of Central Park and Manhattan for the Forest Way, the pair had to complete the 26 mile run over a 24 hour period, and share to the organisers via the exercise app Strava.

Starting at 6am in the morning, they were able to finish the run in just under five hours – a highly creditable performance.

Miah has so far raised over £1000 for Teenage Cancer Trust, the MS Society, Guide Dogs for the Blind and the QVH Charity. 

Well done to both of you – let’s hope half-term brings some rest!
