Mr Mark Sayer Weekly Update 02nd October: Running

02 October 2015

Last weekend (Sunday 25th September) saw a number of BVIS staff join forces with other organisations for the first Fun Run in Ecopark put on by the British Business Group of Vietnam (BBGV).  What a great event it was with over 1,300 people present with runners of all ages participating.

It was a colourful spectacle with different companies all wearing their identifiable kit, coming together for a good cause (BBGV Fun Run detail).  Families of all ages and sizes, young and older alike, were there and it was wonderful to see even the younger of our students participate and run at least some sections of what was billed as a 4km run.  The conditions were hot and close, causing just a few to overheat!

Indeed, the quality of runners – and I certainly cannot put myself in that category – was high.  Our own Alicia Smith (PE Department) performed admirably coming in as the first female runner of the day, whilst Simon Hoare, the husband of our HR Manager, Nguyen Thu Ha, came in an excellent 3rd overall.   Congratulations to all the runners and family members for your support.  We are already looking forward to next year’s event.

While this was happening, in another part of the country, our Year 3 teacher Judith Moclair was running the Sa Pa Half Marathon, no small task given the terrain and the weather.  You can read about her experiences in the Vietnam Mountain Marathon 2015 article.  As we have outlined recently, there is so much to be gained from fitness and sport.  We do sincerely hope that all our students will continue to take an active role in sporting activities and remain fit, healthy and lively.  It is a great way to meet people and to have fun at the same time.

I wish you a very happy and fruitful weekend.

Mr Mark Sayer - Principal of BVIS Hanoi
