A team of parents and a Year 6 teacher from Childer Thornton Primary School have been to hell and back.
The seven-strong team completed the Hell Up North half-marathon challenge in Delamere Forest on Saturday.
Dubbed the ‘toughest half marathon in the world’ the 13.1 mile route included wading shoulder high through a 175m wide lake, called Lucifer’s Lido, in the forest.
Teacher Julian Tegg, who runs with the Ellesmere Port Running Club, described the ‘team spirit’ that kept him going throughout.
He said: “Let’s just say we got through it! I run quite a lot but for some of the people it was their first time. It was tough and we got so cold but it was the team spirit that got us through.
“It was great to get to know some of the parents better and we might do another run some other time.”
The team has raised more than £500 for the Parent Teacher Association to extend the AstroTurf at the school.
