Easter 3K Family Run Challenge

We hope everyone is safe and well. The priority at this time is to stay at home and save lives. We do however understand a lot of people need to stay active for their physical and mental wellbeing. Sport and physical activity is essential to our physical and mental wellbeing, our sense of positivity and our long term health. Our mission is to continue supporting responsible sport and physical activity participation while minimising the spread of COVID 19 in our communities.

For several years, the Derry City & Strabane District Council EveryBody Active 2020 team has worked across the Council area in schools, clubs, communities and leisure centres to help people get active and improve their well-being and have had great fun along the way!

At this time Exercise is still important.

That’s why we have a little challenge for you in the coming weeks. To run 3k between Friday 2nd April and Monday 5th April at a time that suits you. We have designed a training schedule for you with some tips on warms up and stretching along the way!
