The Stroke Association is encouraging people to take part in Resolution Run at Delamere Forest.
The event, a 5k, 10k or 15k on Sunday, March 13, is one of 28 fundraising such runs taking place across the UK this spring.
Events officer at the Stroke Association Laura McMullin said: “Many New Year’s Resolutions focus on improving our health by stopping smoking, eating lots of fruit and vegetables or joining a gym. The Resolution Run at Delamere Forest is the ideal event for people in Cheshire who have made a New Year’s resolution to get more active.
“The events are open to all ages and abilities, and participants can run, jog or walk the routes. We’ll also provide a full training guide to help keep Resolution Runners on track every step of the way.”
At least half of strokes could be prevented if people made simple lifestyle changes, such as keeping blood pressure under control and exercising more. The money raised through the Resolution Run will help the Stroke Association to fund vital research and help support people affected by stroke in the North West region.
Entry fee is just £15. All runners receive a running top and medal. For more information about entering or volunteering at the Resolution Run, visit www.stroke.org.uk/resolution or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
