Mr Allchin made it! On a very wet and windy day he battled the weather and the hills to complete the Eden project marathon - all to raise money for our school.
He says "This event was advertised as 'challenging'. I can tell you it is BRUTAL!"
"I knew I was expecting some hills on the course, but nothing I had done in training prepared me for the onslaught of continuous hill climbing in the first 13 miles. It seemed that around every corner was another hill, just as steep, and just as muddy."
Congratulations Mr Allchin on this huge achievement and many thanks from us all of us at Christ Church School.
Please have a look at his own Blog for a more detailed review of the event.
