SPRING 2020 BUDDYING!

In light of recent travel restrictions and closures, it’s important to remember the ways in which we can CONNECT!

Now more than ever, we don’t want our schools to feel isolated within our global community or reluctant to get up and active! Childhood is a time to make friends, keep healthy & active and have FUN at school!

We’re offering the opportunity for schools to share their experiences internationally with another school by signing up to our Global Buddying programme.

‘Buddying’ provides an opportunity for your school to work collaboratively with a school from another part of the world, helping pupils to broaden their knowledge and understanding of the world they live in, whilst sharing and celebrating their experiences. Your school can use this to support the curriculum too, with opportunities to develop geographical, environmental, well-being and language knowledge.

For Spring 2020 ONLY, the first ten schools to submit their resources for our Buddying programme receive a GO Run For Fun, EVENT IN A BOX!

The box provides everything your school or class will need to host their very own in-school GO Run For Fun event, at a time that best suits you. This includes an easy-to-follow guide, a T-shirt for each child running, and exciting event day resources. 

Teachers, feel free to join our GO Run For Fun Facebook Buddying group to share your experiences, or to learn more about how other schools all over the world are enjoying it!

GETTING ACTIVE ACROSS THE INEOS FAMILY

WE LOVE TO SEE stories such as this, learning that one of our GO Run For Fun participants from previous years (race number #69) has recently went on to complete an internship with INEOS Cologne Communications department! 

Their two week internship taught them about different aspects of our company in the INEOS Cologne Communications department, where he told colleagues he knew INEOS from taking part at this GO Run For Fun event in Pulheim with Geschwister-Scholl-Gymnasium.

Schools such as Geschwister-Scholl-Gymnasium are preparing young people for a future in work by inspiring them with real life experiences, as GO Run For Fun aims to inspire children to be more healthy and active.

Since it’s establishment in 2013, it’s fantastic to see children growing and getting active across the INEOS family, as a reminder of the impact getting your children active and involved with GO Run For Fun from such a young age.

We are always happy to hear stories such as this, and feedback from your event experiences. If you have anything you’d like to share, please feel free to get in touch via info@www.thedailymileevents.com

OLYMPIC MEDALLIST DUO SUPPORT 1000 PRIMARY PUPILS IN NORTHWICH RUN

NORTHWICH primary schools came together for a mass fun run on Wednesday 18 September 2019 with Olympic gymnasts Beth Tweddle and Amy Tinkler attending the event as special guests.

Over 1000 pupils aged between 5 and eleven arrived at Moss Farm to take on the 2-kilometre run organised by GO Run For Fun and a number of local primary schools joined in.

Beth Tweddle and Amy Tinkler each led a warm up routine for the morning and afternoon events, cheering the participants when they started the run and throughout the route. The gymnasts also hosted a question and answer session after the events so the children could pick their brains about how they started their athletic journeys and what they enjoy the most about their sport.

Beth Tweedle said: “This is an amazing opportunity for everyone and I wish this was something I had when I was at school. I started Gymnastics when I was very young, I just loved flipping around all over the place, I did other sports in school but I’ve always done Gymnastics.”

Amy Tinkler added: “Everyone looks amazing today! I wish I had a pink t-shirt… I’ve always loved gymnastics – I started when I was 2 so I’ve been doing it for seventeen years now. Try as many sports as you can, there’ll be at least one that’s right for you.”

GO Run For Fun is an initiative supported by INEOS, a multinational company head-quartered in London, with health and fitness at the heart of its ethos.

INEOS Chairman, Jim Ratcliffe, is deeply passionate about running. He said: “It has never been more important to support young people in leading healthier, more active lives.

“GO Run for Fun and The Daily Mile have been making a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of hundreds of thousands of children in the UK and beyond for the last six years. We are very proud to support these two initiatives and everyone who runs in them.”

SCOTLAND’S EILIDH DOYLE SUPPORTS FALKIRK FUN RUN

OLYMPIC medallist Eilidh Doyle supported 237 primary school children in a mass fun run at The Helix on Monday 16 September 2019.

Seven local primary schools took part in the event which was organised by GO Run For Fun and pupils aged between 5 and eleven ran a 2-kilometre route covering the Home of The Kelpies grounds.

Scotland’s most decorated track athlete, Eilidh Doyle was invited as the special guest for the children’s event leading the warm-up routine and getting them ready for the run. Doyle sounded the horn at the start of the run and high-fived the primary pupils as they completed the route.

Doyle commented: “I think it’s great for young children to be around big events like this that promote fun activity, a healthy lifestyle and competitive spirit. A positive experience at a young age allows for a positive and lifelong relationship with being active.

“A nice balanced healthy and active lifestyle is simple and should be fun. It can be something you do with friends or family and shouldn’t feel like a chore.

When asked about how she got into running, Doyle said: “Through primary school I realised I was quite good at running when I won a couple of cross-country events. But it was really down to my big sister Iona, who got asked to join a local athletics club after winning a cross country race, I went with her and loved it.

“It has been such a huge part of my life. I have met so many amazing people, friends and role models. It has also allowed me to learn about myself, my strengths and weaknesses, how to improve and achieve my goals, how to deal with disappointment and how to be independent.”

GO Run For Fun is an initiative supported by INEOS, a multinational company head-quartered in London, with health and fitness at the heart of its ethos. Volunteers from INEOS and Graeme High School supported with the smooth running of the event.

INEOS Chairman, Jim Ratcliffe, is deeply passionate about running. He said: “It has never been more important to support young people in leading healthier, more active lives.

“GO Run for Fun and The Daily Mile have been making a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of hundreds of thousands of children in the UK and beyond for the last six years. We are very proud to support these two initiatives and everyone who runs in them.”
