If you’re looking for motivation to get fit in 2019, how about taking part in the Love Barrow Running Festival?
Organised by ‘Life Leisure Barrow Park’ in conjunction with Cumbria County Council, Barrow Borough Council & local running groups, the festival is now open for entries.
Taking place on Sunday 6th October 2019, the festival includes options for all from a ‘Measured Mile’ to a 10k Road Race, all starting from Barrow Town Hall.
In an effort to help raise awareness for Suicide Prevention, the Love Barrow Festival of Running will also incorporate a Mental Health Mile Fun Run & #BeWellFest which is open to all.
The festival will be an event for all with the goal of bringing awareness for suicide prevention & the promotion of positive mental health.
Our goals are to promote the awareness that suicide is a serious public health problem in the Barrow borough and that many suicides are preventable.
Cllr Kevin Hamilton said: “We’re really looking forward the event. Following the Tour of Britain, we want to create more spectator sporting events in the town, not only do these events bring visitors but it also creates a fun, positive atmosphere in the town on an otherwise quiet day.”
