With many people looking to get fit and healthy or do something great for charity in 2017, St Helens Council’s GoActive team is inviting residents to train with them for free ahead of the popular event.

The St Helens 10k is organised annually by the Steve Prescott Foundation and GPW Recruitment, and is now in its seventh year.

Join the team every Tuesday, 6pm-7pm at Queen’s Park Health and Fitness Centre or Selwyn Jones Sports Centre. There’ll also be extra chances to train on Saturday 4 and Saturday 25 February, 7am-8am at Queen’s Park. That’s nine sessions between today (Monday 16 January) and race day on Sunday 5 March.

Runners aged over 16 of all abilities are welcome, but please wear some hi-vis clothing.

For further details on the council’s sports and leisure opportunities, go to the GoActive website or call 01744 671717 (Queen’s Park) or 01744 677970 (Selwyn Jones). For more information on the event, visit the St Helens 10k website.
