PUPILS at two schools went on the run for fun last week.
Icknield Walk First School in Royston staged the mini fun run, with pupils from Studlands Rise First School also joining in. About 80 children from key stages one and two took part, and each participant was given a sticker and certificate for completing the run.
A spokesman for Icknield Walk said: “The enthusiastic youngsters started off in a fit of giggles and an energy that us adults would find hard to match.
“By the end of the one-mile run, the children were tired but full of smiles and feeling very proud of themselves.
“Mums and dads came to watch and cheer them on.”

Many of the children were using the fun run as preparation for this year’s Royston in Blue, race which takes place on Therfield Heath on June 23.
One of those is seven-year-old Cameron Thompson, who was the highest child fundraiser last year at Royston in Blue, raising more than £450. He is taking part in the 5k, family run run/walk again this year and is going to try and beat his target. If you would like to enter Royston in Blue download the entry form at www.roystoninblue.co.uk
