St Andrew’s School, Virtual “The Run”

With over 300 entries to participate in our Virtual event last year, Lucayan House was the winner for 2021 with 4,910 points! Taino was in a close second followed by Arawak and Carib. Please consider joining us for our second annual virtual run. 

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.

Now it is your chance to participate virtually. Whether as an Alum or current student, you were or will be a St Andrews legend yourself or a ‘slog through it’ warrior. You may be a parent, past or present who wants a taste of what the kids are complaining about? Maybe a faculty member who always wanted to try it. You may just love walking and running, have never been or will attend St Andrews but you want to show your support for a good cause.

Whatever your reasons it will be fun, it will be at your own pace and it will be for the most coveted prize currency – HOUSE POINTS!
