In their role as Foundation Partner, technological experts Polar will be powering the Education element of Schools Running Movement.

Polar will be doing this by providing a supportive structure of practical advice and technical knowledge for all those taking part in our events. This will be delivered via Schools Running Movement YouTube, a free channel for runners, schools and parents to support their Schools Half Marathon.

This free sport education service will be powered by Polar to help support Schools Half Marathon on its journey to encourage children, adults and siblings across the UK to get active and to establish a regular, healthy exercise routine. The educational content will cover a wide range of running-related topics for runners of all ages, levels and experience.

Future developments with Polar include implementing statistical support to schools to help measure the impact Schools Half Marathon is making.

Polar is one of 12 partners that will work together to provide helpful and informative content for the education channel.

Polar helps runners to monitor their training and optimise their performance through its range of high-quality fitness trackers, GPS sports watches, bike computers and related accessories.
