St Cuthbert's Way is a 100km cross-border route, linking the English and Scottish boarders. This is one of the most beautiful and enjoyable long distance routes in Britain. With this in mind, a dedicated group of staff and students from Worksop College decided to take on this glorious route.
The team consisted of seven students and three members of staff, who all completed the run which honours the Patron Saint of the College Chapel. The route links Melrose, where St. Cuthbert started his religious life in 650AD, with Holy Island, his eventual resting place and his original pilgrimage shrine.
Head of Outdoor Education, Will Robinson, ran alongside the group. He told us:
"As always, it was a pleasure to take on St Cuthbert's Way - it has actually become the highlight of my year. The weather was kind to us and the views were as brilliant as ever. There may have been a few blisters by the end of it, but it was certainly worth it. The team spirit was unbeatable, and the runners have done themselves proud."
Miss Grant, Head of Drama and Housemistress of Derry, also took on the challenge. "It was a brilliant opportunity to be able to do nothing but run for two days straight," she told us. "I would recommend for anyone to do it - simply to see the beautiful scenery!"
