TCS London Mini-Marathon


On Saturday, 80 children and their parents from Downderry headed into central London to complete the TCS London Mini-Marathon. Despite it being a little colder and windier than ideal, a wonderful day was had by all running either the 2.6km or 1-mile route starting from Horse Guards Parade and finishing on The Mall after a glorious run past Buckingham Palace. Some took the chance to show off their competitive prowess and put their Daily Mile practice into good use while others enjoyed a more leisurely pace, seeing the sights and lapping up the fantastic support from observers on the side lines.


Congratulations to all who took part! Also, a special thanks to those staff who gave up their Saturday to support the children at the event! We look forward to completing this event again next year - hopefully with even more Downderry representatives taking part!


Children in years 1 & 2 who have been raising money for Great Ormond Street Hospital and Antenatal Results & Choices have together raised over £1800 for the charities. Well Done!
