In pictures: Hills Road Sixth Form College fun run returns after hiatus
There were certainly some eye-catching costumes on display as the Hills Road Sixth Form College’s 4.5k fun run (HR4.5) returned for the first time since 2019.
Five hundred students and staff from the college turned out in force on Monday (April 25) for the annual event to raise funds for Teenage Cancer Trust.
Participants ran, walked and went three-legged around the route, with many in fancy-dress costumes, including a comedy fire brigade, a wearable inflatable dinosaur, a penguin and Spider-Man.
Year 12 student Maxwell Buchanan was the first person over the finish line.
French teacher and organiser of the HR4.5 fun run, Sara Macfarlane, said: “It’s amazing to see the energy and enthusiasm of our college community who have come together to not only make this event possible and have a lot of fun in the process, but also so we can raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust which is such a worthwhile cause.
“So far, we have raised over £5,000 and we still have donations coming in. Thank you to everyone who took part, whether you completed the race or helped with its organisation.”
Principal Jo Trump dressed as a box of French fries, deputy principal Nicki Dartnell as a hotdog and assistant principals Ian Pryer and Ali Talbot were dressed up as a bottle of ketchup and a pot of mustard respectively.
The organisers would also like to give special thanks to TWI which sponsored the event.
