RACEWAYS is urging the public to embrace the new government-led fitness drive by getting active and showing their TENacious side this August, whilst also celebrating the tenth birthday of Kids Run Free.
The lockdown period caused by COVID-19 has seen gyms and leisure facilities closed, with lots of people struggling to maintain fitness regimes and a healthy lifestyle.
These restrictions were lifted last month and people are being urged to get back into regular exercise and embrace an improved diet in the fight against obesity.
Raceways was set up to help people support and fund-raise for national running charity Kids Run Free, meaning money generated by the Alcester 10km, Leamington Spa Half Marathon and Warwick Reindeer Run funds free running opportunities for hundreds of thousands of children in schools and parks across the UK.
To help Raceways continue to fund Kids Run Free, they want individuals to commit to a TENacious goal in August.
Choose how far you want to push yourself – whether it be a 10km in August, ten miles, 10km every day on a bike or ten press-ups and sit-ups every hour of every day.
For just £10, you can be part of something incredible which helps give even more children the opportunity to run with their friends and family for free. Sign up at https://endurancecui.active.com/new/events/70309253/forms?_p=9997560985124114.
Organisers will also be offering race registrations as prizes across three categories – Most Impressive Challenge, Most Creative Route and Best Fancy Dress.
One winner per category will win entry to all three of Raceways’ 2021 races – the Leamington Spa Half Marathon, Alcester 10km and Warwick Grand National Run.
Kids Run Free – partially funded by Raceways – operates two running-based initiatives in the shape of Marathon Kids in school time and Park Kids at weekends and during the school holidays.
More than 140,000 children have benefited from Kids Run Free over the past ten years and in the last academic year children ran more than 365,000km.
