Gymrun Challenges

The Gymrun Challenges provide a motivational way for every child and every organisation to monitor, understand and celebrate fitness progression. During these sessions, children are encouraged to think critically about their own and others’ performances.

Moving to learn through Gymrun.

Through the Gymrun Challenges, every child will; embrace physical challenge and personal competition; develop resilience and cooperative skills; celebrate achievements and deal with failures; and better understand their personal fitness and health.

By delivering this lesson, schools will reach three of six PE NC areas. On completion of the Gymrun Accreditation, staff can deliver these challenges sustainably within their organisation, returning all scorecards to Gymrun for data and badge distribution.
