Greenwich 10-year-old runs 150km through wind and snow to raise money for gym

A 10-year-old has ran over three marathons in February, running through sun, rain and even snow to raise money for her struggling Greenwich gymnastics club.

The Greenwich Royals Gymnastic Club, based in Kidbrooke, has hit tough times, recently losing their home, plus a large amount of equipment and other facilities.

Hallie, a lover of gymnastics, braved early snow, then heavy rain, after she decided to take on a 150km challenge to fundraise for the club.

She completed her final run for the month yesterday, on February 28, wrapping up the full 150km. Mum Chelsea said the “dedication and motivation she has shown doing it has been inspiring,” adding they were all “so proud of her!”

Typically training at the club for 16-20 hours a week at the Greenwich gymnastics club, Hallie said she was determined to raise some money for the love she has for her sport.

Her longest run was 11km through snowy conditions, and her quickest 5km was a remarkable and enviable 21 minutes and 50 seconds.

So far the 10-year-old has raised over £1,000 for the club, smashing her £150 target.

Hallie added that she was extremely grateful for everyone’s donations.

She’s even decided she wants to keep going in March, as well as keeping the fundraising page going as she aims to run 100km despite returning to school on the 8th.
