This year’s Barns Green Half Marathon with an expected 2,000 runners, will once again pass through the magnificent grounds of Christ’s Hospital School on Sunday, 29th September to the sound of the school’s famous Band, whose impressive list of engagements includes Lord’s and Twickenham. This will be the second year that the band has played as the runners have gone past and the musical accompaniment was a huge hit with everyone involved last year.
John Franklin, Head Master, said “We are delighted that the pupils and staff at the school will get the chance to see such a wonderful local event that last year raised over £10,000 for local causes. We once again intend to have our famous Band of over 100 pupils playing in the Quadrangle adjacent to the runners as they pass through. This will be a great spectacle and will hopefully give all those running in the race, including some of our staff and senior pupils, an extra lift”.
