In order to launch their new Athletics unit, students in PE were set the challenge of breaking the world record for 1 mile. Obviously they would not be able to run as fast as the world record holder if they ran on their own. They were therefore set the task of trying to beat it by running as a relay team. They were expected to plan out how far each of them would run in order to cover the distance of just over 4 laps of the Athletics track.

The boys and girls made an excellent attempt, but unfortunately were not quite able to beat it. They definitely had a new found respect for how fast the top athletes run!
