Get ready at the double for Sefton’s latest duathlon

Fitness fanatics are being encouraged to get ready at the double ahead of the 2019 Active Workforce duathlon.

Taking place once again at Litherland Sports Park next week (Wednesday October 2) the fun duathlon will consist of a 1.5k run, followed by a 5k cycle and a further 1.5k run to the finish.

Places are still available to take part and competitors over the age of 16 from across the region are welcome, with entries priced at £10 for Active Workforce members and £15 for the public.

Changing rooms, showers and lockers will be available and water and refreshments will be provided after the race. There will also be limited bike hire, please inform Active Workforce if you’ll need a bike upon registration.

Cllr Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: “Each year the Active Workforce duathlon proves to be an incredibly popular sporting event

“This is a great opportunity to try a different sort of challenge that you might not have tried before and participants can run or walk at their own pace.”

To sign up for the Duathlon email active.workforce@sefton.gov.uk.

Part of Sefton Council’s leisure offering, Active Workforce provides opportunities for fitness and wellbeing both in and out of the workplace.
