The aim is to get at least 24,901 people throughout Lancashire to take part in the Your Mile Your Way challenge and complete the amount of miles it would take to walk around the world!
Your Mile Your Way is being coordinated by Lancashire County Council as part of its Active Lives and Healthy Weight programme and leisure providers who deliver the programme in each area – including Pendle Leisure Trust’s Up and Active team - will all be running activities on May 18th.
Pendle Leisure Trust’s Up and Active team want people to join them in a three-park challenge which will see teams transport an actual sofa for the length of a mile around Alkincoats Park (10am), Barrowford Park (3pm) and Victoria Park (6.30pm), to provide a new spin on the Couch to 5k programme.
Or you can do your own thing – either as an individual or collectively as a group - just as long as you remember to pledge your mile via the Your Mile Your Way website - www.yourmileyourway.co.uk
Pendle Leisure Trust’s Up and Active Manager, Clive Escreet, said: “Do it whichever way you want! With your work colleagues, you could simply walk a mile round the town centre on your lunch break or do it as part of your gym workout.
“And it doesn’t have to be done on Friday, May 18th, it can be done any time during our Health Week – Monday, May 14th to Sunday, May 20th.”
Pendle Leisure Trust’s Gym Manager, Luke Allwood, added: “Our members and any members of the public can use our leisure centres to complete their mile, whether it’s in the gym or going for a swim. We also have plenty of classes where a mile can be completed, including Spinning and Circuits.”
