To help celebrate the 140th Russell Run at Blundell’s School we hosted a Pasta Party the night prior to the race. Over 50 Old Blundellians, Parents and pupils attended the event. The Head, Bart Wielenga welcomed our guests and he gave a terrific overview of how the Russell has become a much-loved event at the hearts of our Blundellians (but also equally detested to some as well!) An archive display of Russell Run memorabilia including the Russell Run Trophy and list of winners was also on display at the event. The group dined to a two-course pasta dinner including Seafood linguini, Beef and pork cannelloni & wild mushroom Tortellini, followed by a cheese and Tiramisu course. Over 75 Old Blundellians, Parents and Prep School Pupils showed up the following day to take part in either the Open (9.1km or 5.6 miles) or Fun Run (3.4km or 2 miles) which was our biggest turn out yet!
