Millom make a start on their New Year health kick

millom-park-runThe community in Millom have made a start on their New Year health kick as they launched Parkrun locally.

Comedian and author Shappi Khorsandi led the first Millom Parkrun on Saturday 17th December.

Parkruns are free, weekly, 5km timed runs open to all and organised around the world. Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trusts charitable funds were used to cover the initial set up costs but the initiative is now fully run by volunteers, including several NHS staff.

Better Care Together is supporting communities to be as healthy as possible by working in partnership with them.

More details on how to get involved, either running or volunteering, are available on the park run website. http://www.parkrun.org.uk/millom/
