Top Ultra Marathon Runner, Damian Hall inspires APS pupils in what motivates him
In February, Abingdon Prep launched a new initiative ‘What’s Your Thing?’ in which pupils are challenged to think hard about where their passions and interests lie.
We were delighted to be joined by Britain’s top ultra runner, Damian Hall who, sharing his passion for running and the environment, answered questions from some of our pupils about what motivates him, what he thinks about during all those hours of running, what he finds most tough about it and how he manages to live and run in a carbon negative manner.
There was certainly something to inspire everyone no matter what their ‘thing’ might be – though it may not be quite as tough as Damian’s completion of the 268 mile Pennine Way!
