Community Event: The Big Half and Big Relay as a part of London Marathon

Wednesday 20 December 2017

We have been given a great opportunity to attend the London Marathon Event’s Big Half, Mini Half and Big Relay community races. These races have been created by London Marathon Events as one day festivals centred around the half marathon distance, which aims to be a celebration of the wonderful cultural diversity of London.

We would like to represent our whole Ark Globe community at these events and are inviting you to participate with your child. If you are interested in taking part, please get in touch with Ms Davess-Humphrey at or send a message to her through your child.

Ark Globe’s logo will be seen on different occasions at the London Marathon 2018. Both our primary and secondary schools will be represented at the Marathon with their artworks. The secondary students will design seven metre marathon banners and primary will design mile markers.

When it comes to the big Marathon day itself we have an extra reason to cheer at the mile markers - one of Ark employees, Tom Rose, has been selected to run the London Marathon 2018 in support of Ark Globe! Tom Rose has previously worked for the Place2Be and currently works as an interim Operations Director of Ark Institute for Teaching. He is very excited to be able to support the good work at Ark Globe via this big fundraising event and to take on this very big challenge. We will support Mr Rose's run and fundraising activities throughout the Spring term.

Please join us and celebrate his bravery in signing up for the Marathon and support his fundraising campaign. All the money raised will be spent on our academy.
