BLENNERVILLE National School and the ‘Born to Run’ running group have joined forces in order to promote a healthy active lifestyle for young people.

“Basically over the school year our 6th class will be running 100 miles in total,” said Principal Terry O’Sullivan.

“We will be running on average five and six kilometers once a week. What we’re trying to do is promote¬†fitness in young people. With things like ‘Operation Transformation’ going on at the moment, it’s a topical thing in the news at the moment to keep children active,” said the Principal.

“We’re a fit school. Recently we passed an inspection of our physical activities, so we’ll be receiving our active school flag shortly, of which there are only a half a dozen or so awarded in the county,” said Mr O’Sullivan.
