Race Around the World 2.0 - for Health and Community Spirit

21 Jan 2021
School News

January is traditionally a time when resolutions involve being healthy and taking more exercise. Both could not be more important with the backdrop of the current pandemic. And if these can reinforce the strong bonds in our community, all the better!

Following the success of Roedean’s Race Around the World last lockdown, we are taking on a bigger challenge this term - to travel from Brighton to Brighton, visiting each of the 31 countries where our students live. The journey is over 65,000 kilometres. 

We hope that this might help us all feel close and connected to each other, at a time when we are all forced to be apart from one another.

We invite girls, staff, parents, ORs and former staff to take part - simply log the distances you cover while exercising or just going about your daily business, and let’s see how quickly we can get around the world and back to Brighton!

There will be a charitable element to the challenge too - given the difficulties many people are going through, we hope to raise funds to go towards a Roedean hardship fund, as well as for our chosen charities (Off the Fence, Liberian Chimpanzee Rescue and Protection, and Beachy Head Chaplaincy). We will add the donation link as soon as it is live.

ORs and Former Staff, please click here to log your distances – as this is like a New Year’s Resolution, you can include distances back to 1 January! There will be a competitive element as well, so let's see if the OR and Former Staff team can take the lead against Current Staff and the Houses!
