‘Run a Day’ Challenge
National Dates: March 22nd – April 30th
ASF encourages ALL schools to commit to the 4-week ‘RUN a Day’ challenge during the spring term. This challenge is one of the key criteria for schools working towards ASF.
Running is a fundamental movement skill, and one that requires regular practise. The ‘Move Well, Move Often’ (PDST) resource provides many and varied resources designed to support schools wishing to promote running as part of their PE programme.
ASF provides schools with a number of different running challenges that can be used to promote cross-curricular learning while undertaking the ‘Run a Day’ challenge. These resources are available in English and Irish versions.
Week 1: March 22nd – March 26th
Week 2: April 12th – 16th
Week 3: April 19th – 23rd
Week 4: April 26th – 30th (National ‘Active School Week’)
