Hey everyone. We’re delighted to announce that registrations are now open for our upcoming Colin Glen Healthy Lifestyles 5k training programme. This programme is funded as part of Sport Northern Ireland’s Every Body Active 2020 programme, in partnership with Belfast City Council.
Sport Northern Ireland Chair George Lucas commented:
“Sport NI is delighted to be investing over £6m of National Lottery funding in the 11 District Councils across Northern Ireland. By working together over the next 4 years on the delivery of Strand 1 of Every Body Active 2020 we will begin to see real changes in sport and physical activity participation – especially amongst women and girls, people with a disability and those in areas of greatest social need. We look forward to seeing the impact of our investment for people in our communities, helping them to enjoy, engage and excel in sport and leading to a population which is more active more often.”
Our programme will take you on a journey from sofa surfer to fun runner over a 10 week period, and aims to improve your physical fitness, body image, health and well-being, sleep pattern and general happiness. Upon completion of our 5K programme, we will take part in a graduation run at Colin Glen Forest parkrun.
So come along and join other like-minded individuals for an exciting and energetic journey!! Of course the whole point of this adventure is that anyone, yes anyone, can take part. By the time it’s all over you’ll be feeling really good about yourself and be looking forward to climbing to the next level…but one step at a time.
The 10 week programme runs twice weekly on Mondays & Thursdays from 6-7pm beginning on Monday 27th August 2018 at Colin Park Leisure and focuses on fun, physical activity and friendship. Targeted at people with low levels of physical fitness, if you have a higher level of physical fitness you may want to register for Colin Glen Parkrun.
The programme will be delivered by fully qualified personal trainers and run leaders.
The Healthy Lifestyles 5K programme will take part outdoors at Colin Park Leisure 3g pitches. Places are limited and are allocated on a first come first served basis. People who are unsuccessful will be placed on a reserve list and contacted thereafter.
