Brighton Girls is delighted to announce the launch of our new Virtual Running Club. Recognising that more people are taking to the streets to exercise, we have decided to come together as a community and raise some money for the local Guild charity Whoopsadaisy.

The challenge is to collectively run and visit as many of our fellow GDST schools as we can, starting from our home in Brighton and meandering our way north until we reach our furthest family in Liverpool – an 860 mile trip!

The route is as follows:

    1. Brighton Girls
    2. Portsmouth 
    3. London (100 miles)
    4. Oxford
    5. Cardiff  (250 miles)
    6. Northampton
    7. Norwich   (500 miles)
    8. Nottingham
    9. Shrewsbury
    10. Sheffield
    11. Birkenhead and Belvedere

We appreciate that COVID-19 has made life harder for many accentuating the need for exercise and the positive benefits it can have on our mental health. Working together on such a monumental feat can help us raise our collective spirit and get active!
