The Chaucer

As part of the Community Mental Health Day on Saturday 8th February, the College held a fun run which also marked the official opening of its new 2km waymarked running route – “The Chaucer”. This new course is the brainchild of Head of Running, Delyth Lynch, who has been working very closely with Mark Dodd, Head of Gardens and Countryside, over the planning and design of the route over the last year. We are delighted that so many took part in the event, and hope that The Chaucer will bring peace, health and happiness to many more runners over the years. The College running club is a member of the #runandtalk initiative set up by England Athletics, an initiative supported by Mind. You can read more about this HERE.

None of this could be achieved without the amazing support of all those involved with the running club, but also the Grounds, Gardens, Events and Security staff who work so hard to ensure that our runners have an excellent course to run on – but are also safe as well. Teamwork really has made this dream work!
