Only 700 km to go - Run to Tokyo!

Its been a slow week this week, but Silverton is now only 700km left to go on our virtual Run to Tokyo!

Over the past few weeks students have been busy running for "Run to Tokyo", both at school and at home during remote learning, as part of their PE program.

Lockodowns have certainyl slowed our tally but as of 13th August our current tally is 7300km!

We encourage all members of our Silverton community to get up and run or walk kilometres towards Tokyo and complete our challenge! 

Any kilometres travelled as part of an outside walk or run at home can count towards the schools tally, so we encourage students to record their efforts here

However, it is not just walks or runs around the neighbourhood that can count towards our target. Any physical actvity students do can be put towards our kilometre tally. Please refer to the table to convert physical activity time into equivalent kilometres.

Lets get to Tokyo Team Silverton!
