PE teachers Ricky Wickwar and Josh Mycroft opted to tackle the run as a three-legged race.
The fastest staff team was Head of PE Vikki Rundle-Brown, who was partnered by Assistant Headteacher Andy Binns.
Mrs Rundle-Brown said: "We had the highest number of entrants for several yeras. The event reminded me yet again of what amazing students we have and there were some fabulous examples of great comradery throughout the event."
All proceeds are divided between the school's eight House charities.
