This week has been an eventful week for the students in the school I am working with. While there were race packs to collect, morning exercises to prepare the students for the run and instructions for the event, students were buzzing with excitement and apprehension about what to expect on that day.
Yesterday, 29 November 2014, was D-day! Students had to gather at the Music Village, looking out for our school banner.
When my colleagues and I reached the Thuwanna Stadium, we estimated a total of 6,000 to 8,000 people of all ages, gathering for fun, walk/ run and music. Since we didn’t make it for the mass warm-up, we did our usual routine during our regular exercises before heading toward the Starting point.
We took a lot of selfies as we ran and the event ended with a Music concert after dusk. I believe this would be an unforgettable event for many our students and I am glad that we participated in the Music Run together!
