The Old Sedberghian Club would like to thank all those who took part in the 2019 Global Run Event. The 5-day challenge was a resounding success with tweets using the hashtag #SedberghGlobalRun coming in from 23 different countries across 6 continents. It was fantastic to see the Global Sedbergh Community come together and engage with the biggest School event of the year.
To illustrate this success in figures, the Global Run video had over 60,000 views across the Sedbergh School Facebook & Twitter pages and became the most engaging and interactive video ever posted by the School. Meanwhile, there were 641 tweets containing the hashtag #SedberghGlobalRun which were posted by a combination of staff, parents, OS, locals and even dogs! 82 of these were images and 53 were videos using the hashtag, with the total views of all these tweets amassing 152,000 views across the duration of the challenge.
A map displaying all the tweet locations, ranging from an oil rig in the North Sea to the jungles of Belize, can be seen below:
The OS Club aims to continue the challenge next year which we hope can go even bigger!
