Congratulations to Kingsbury High School’s Head of Year 9, Mr Das, for completing the BUPA London 10000, 10km road race along the Olympic Marathon course through central London.
The race took in some of the most famous landmarks in the world, going through Trafalgar Square, along the River Thames up to St Paul’s Cathedral and the City of London before coming back towards Big Ben and the finish in front of Buckingham Palace.
Held just one week before the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, London looked beautiful in the bright sunshine. The route was lined with spectators and bands, all cheering encouragement and spurring the runners on.
Mr Das said “It was a great opportunity to sample a little bit of the Olympic spirit, just 2 months ahead of the Games, and made me proud to be a Londoner!”
