Global Running Day - British International School

This year Wednesday 6 June was “Global Running Day” and the students at BIS joined in alongside thousands of such events taking place all worldwide.

The goal was for students, along with some parents and staff, to run 1 km!

We were grateful to, once again, be at the excellent indoor athletics stadium (Atletska dvorana Beograd) in Banjica.

With students, rotating between Primary and Secondary classes running alongside our guest runners, they all enjoyed running around the track (5 times 200 m). Each participant had their own named bib, and those who completed will receive a certificate for doing so. Tired runners at the end of their run were grateful for the drink and banana they all received.

In addition to the event, we used it as a charity to benefit a bowel cancer charity, with students donating to run. In total 11.500 RSD was raised.

50 of our Primary students were away on the annual trip, this time to Vrnjacka Banja. They too took part in their own Global Running Day event on a sports ground close to their hotel.

Well done to all involved.
