Skerries Educate Together NS Marathon 2018 – Day 37 and final update

Hi everyone,

We are delighted to report that we have reached our destination of Vietnam, ending up in the capital city Hanoi after a journey of 661 km today.  This brings our total distance travelled since we left Skerries 36 days ago to a staggering 14,412 km.  Some of the children have run more than two marathons (84 km) during this time and the average distance that each child has covered is over 44 km, and they will take home a certificate of achievement marking their participation in the programme.  It has been great to see all of the children take on the challenge with such enthusiasm and energy, and we hope that it has been a positive experience for all of the families in the school.

A huge word of thanks has to go to all of the teachers and SNAs who implemented the programme each day, it simply couldn’t have happened without their support and dedication.  It was great to watch their encouragement of the children each step of the way (and they clocked up a significant number of kilometres themselves).

We plan to revisit the initiative in the third term next year (destination unknown at this point) and in the meantime we hope that you all manage to keep active and healthy over the summer.

Skerries Educate Together NS Marathon 2018 – Day 36 update

Hi everyone,

We are now within striking distance of Vietnam and hope to reach our destination after tomorrow’s efforts.  As for today, we have crossed into Laos and we will spend the night in the town of Muang Xai, which is the capital of the region and lies in a valley between two large mountains (whose names I can’t remember at the moment).  To get here, we added another 468 km bringing our grand total to 13,751 km so we should also break the 14,000 km barrier tomorrow.

Skerries Educate Together NS Marathon 2018 – Day 35 update

Hi everyone,

We are edging ever closer to Vietnam this week and all the children are making a big push over the last few days.  Today we completed our highest daily total to date, covering 747 km and bringing our overall total to 13,283 km.  We have crossed another international border too, arriving in the beautiful Doi Pha Hom Pok National Park (a natural tongue-twister) in Thailand for a night’s camping underneath the stars.  The park covers 524 square kilometres, is mainly covered with forests and contains the second highest peak in Thailand, namely Doi Pha Hom Pok mountain, which at 2,285m high is over twice the height of our own Carrountoohil.  The park also has many hot mineral springs, with water temperatures between 90 and 130 degrees Celsius, which will do us all good after our long trek today.

Hi everyone,

We added another 396 km today to bring our total to 12,963 km and in the process we have crossed the border into Burma where we will rest for the night in the city of Mandalay.  This was formerly a royal city, founded in 1857 by King Mindon, which has a population today of over 1.3 million people and is the centre of Burmese culture.

Skerries Educate Together NS Marathon 2018 – Day 31 update

Hi everyone,

We travelled another 291 km today to break through the 11,000 km barrier, bringing our total distance run to 11,285 km.  We have landed in the city of Varanasi (population of over 1.1 million people) which is a major religious hub in India.  Situated on the river Ganges, it is the holiest of the seven sacred cities in Hinduism and also played an important part in the development of Buddhism.

Skerries Educate Together NS Marathon 2018 – Day 30 update

Hi everyone,

We completed another 312 km today to bring our total to 10,994 km (the 11,000 km barrier can wait until tomorrow).  We find ourselves in the city of Etawah, which with a population of just over 250,000 (Cork has 190,000 people) is the 180th biggest city in the country.  Etawah also has the remains of the Great Hedge of India, a 2,500 mile customs barrier built by the British in the 19th century that has been likened to the Great Wall of China.
