For the second year running, Seaford College entered teams in the Chichester Corporate Challenge, an annual road run that consists of four 1.25km laps on pedestrianised roads around the centre of Chichester. Teams of four from across the local area compete against each other, with total times for each team added up to decide their overall position.
First home for Seaford was Munroe Graham for the student team, which also consisted of Jonathan Lance, Hugo Wilson and Henry Lunt, with a time of just under 18 minutes. Seaford housemaster and business studies teacher Mr Matthew Pitteway, who organised Seaford’s participation in the event, said: “I was also very pleased that we managed to get two staff teams out as well, with Mr Paul Froud, our IT technician, coming home first in a time of 17 minutes and 25 seconds.”
The next run in the series will take place on 9 March and the final run will be on the last night of term, 23 March. “We are all hoping to improve on our times,” added Mr Pitteway.
