Cubs Going the Extra Mile

Our Cub Scouts Ran the Sport Relief Mile – 25th March 2012

Thankfully it was a glorious sunny day as our Cub Scouts converged at Cornwall’s iconic Eden Project to take part in the Sport Relief Mile! The mile run followed a winding path through the heart of the dramatic biomes and around the lower outdoor site.

Our Cub Scout Pack Before the run

We joined hundreds of runners from Cornwall including some dressed rather elaborately including a pair of Spidermen – one junior, one senior as well as a pair dressed as the 118 moustachioed runners! What a great afternoon of fun, we proceeded the main event with some games and fun in the sunshine to warm our muscles (especially the leaders!) and prepare ourselves for the mile run.

Did you know £50 could feed 100 vulnerable street children in India for one day!

Running as a pack was undoubtably a concern for the leaders however the cubs we’re brilliant helping and supporting one another through the forests and heat of the jungle and the citrus trees of the Mediterranean!

After our rather warming run in a reasonably respectable 13mins we were greeted with encouragement from the many cheering supporters around the route and welcome cool bottle of water at the finish line.

All cubs and leaders were presented with a medal for their endeavours and a great sense of of achievement. As a pack we raised over £70 for sport relief and were all delighted to take part! Well done St Stephens Cubs!
