Running Into Summer
Written by Spark on 29th March 2018
Are you feeling the motivation to get fit for summer? Getting back into the swing of those New Year Resolutions?
If you’re anything like us, you’ll need something to aim for, and we’ve got plenty coming up for you, right here in Sunderland over the summer.
Starting in May (13th), there is the Sunderland Half Marathon. Organisers say “with spectacular coastal views and a brilliant atmosphere, although we cannot guarantee the weather, we can guarantee a superbly organised event with plenty of support on the route and an army of enthusiastic volunteers to make it a great day for all taking part. All participants will receive a t shirt, medal and goody bag.”
If your not quite going to be fit for that, then there is a 5k Race for Life at Herrington Country Park. Not only do you get the feel good vibes from exercising in the fresh air, but also from raising money for Cancer Research UK.
All the way in August, there is the SunCityTri, in case you want to do more than just running! You can swim along our picturesque beach, with a 4 lap fantastic bike ride, followed by a 5k run.
