The event was organised by Sligo Sport and Recreation Partnership (SSRP) in conjunction with the Connacht Schools Athletics Association and supported by Sligo AC. In teams of 10 (mixed boys and girls) and running 200m each, twenty seven primary schools participated in the 2K challenge. Every pupil involved ran their heart out under the watchful eye of Ireland's running legend who had lots of encouragement for all the children involved and participated in some warming up with the children before each event. Although none of the schools managed to break Sonia’s 2K world record,all of the schools performed extremely well and Sonia herself was impressed by the overall standard of running and times, particularly given the windy conditions.
The runners from Scoil Ursula ran very well coming second in their section in a time of 2.45.72. Well done to all!!!
