Teacher runs 18 miles to wave to pupils during lockdown

Teacher Sarah Wilson went on an 18-mile run to visit each of her pupils in lockdown!

Marathon runner Sarah, who teaches at Fishergate Primary School in York, visited more than 60 of her early years pupils, while observing social distancing rules.

Sarah told the York Press that although the run was hard, seeing her students waving to her helped her to keep going: “I mapped out the route to make sure I could see as many of them as possible. It was really fun to see all the pupils and just to give them something to enjoy during these tough times.”

Well done to Sarah, who also raised more than £1,000 for a York Foodbank during her run.
