Take Part in the Devon Virtual Games and Compete Against Schools Across Devon

The Devon Summer Games is a big event in the summer term where children from Devon go and compete in a wide range of events against other schools. This year, the competition has been adapted to 6 virtual events so Devon’s schoolchildren will still be able to take part in the popular School Games this year.  In fact it’s ‘virtually’ the same as normal.

Active Devon, working alongside partners, is launching the Devon ‘Virtual’ Games.  They get underway with a Walk, Jog, Run challenge starting this week. Those in secondary schools will aim for 40, 60 and 80 miles which links in well with our own Miles in May Challenge.

All those taking part will be able to compete at home, in the garden or at school if you should be there. Please ensure you are following the latest government guidance on being active during the coronavirus outbreak. Once a challenge has been completed entries can be submitted on-line.
