"With 50 per cent of adults in Preston considered overweight or obese, and 58 per cent of children considered “less active” than the national guidelines*, we feel our event can help to make a big difference in the area.”

Organisers are extending an open invite to a launch event on Tuesday, July 9 from 6.30pm-8pm to meet sponsors, runners, organisers and volunteers. It will take place at the Mitchell and Kenyon Cinema and Foster Social Space at UCLan.
