Woodbridge School is proudly supporting this year’s Woodbridge 10K Road Race, taking place this Sunday 8 May.
Home to the independent co-education day and boarding school for students age 4 to 18, Woodbridge School has been involved with the race for several years now and as part of the local community, feeling incredibly proud to continue to sponsor the event. Working together with the local community is one of the School’s key values; the fact that the race takes place outside the King’s Head public house happens to be a wonderful co-incidence since it was here that the School was originally founded in 1587.
The event, which has raised over a million pounds for local charities over its 40-year history, aims to raise funds for five local charities this year including Jetty Lane, Seckford Almhouses, Project 21, 4yp and the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
Alongside other sponsors including Adnams, Fenn Wright, Barker Gotelee, East of England Co-op and Notcutts, to name only a few, Woodbridge School staff and students will also be entering the race hoping to beat personal bests and of course, wanting to win!
Offering runners of all abilities and levels the opportunity not only to compete but to enjoy the sights and sounds of Woodbridge town along the 10K route, the race is part of the Woodbridge Round The Town Races which sees a 10K race for runners aged 15 years old and over, alongside a junior 1.5K race open to runners aged between 7 and 15 inclusive.
