The now infamous St Andrew’s School “Run” was and still is known as a legendary dread evoking, shin splinting, character building, house chanting rite of passage. The run made its debut at St Andrew’s School in 1973 and has earned itself the title of most memorable and agonising event of students past and present. Many may remember that the route was run through the middle of the campus, prior to the building of the IT centre and Library. The cheering crowds would gather on the bridge to support their house heroes.
Today the route encompasses several rounds of the playing fields and roundabout, but the contorted faces of pain and victorious house trophy lifting remain the same. “The Run” is alive and well and remains the hallowed event where St Andrew’s legends are made.
With over 300 entries to participate in our Virtual event, House Lucayan was the winner for 2021 with 4,910 points! Taino was in a close second followed by Arawak and Carib. We look forward to an exciting “Run” in 2022! Stay tuned and consider ordering your House T-Shirt below or making a gift to support the school.
