Hitting 2016 with a running start!


IT may have been a wet and windy start to the new year, but dozens turned out to keep those ‘get fit’ resolutions for the West Coast Challenge Events New Year Resolution Run on Sunday January 3.

Our editor joined in the 5k run. That was fun for the whole family with a route from Cleator Moor to Moor Row and back again.



This was just the first of many West Coast Challenge events planned for the year.

There will also be:
The Resolution Improver Run, a follow-up to the Resolution Run, going to the same distance, along the same route – but hopefully doing that little bit better than on January run. This will take place on Sunday March 13.


Also to look forward to:
● March 13 – Resolution Improver 5K
● March 19 – Glow Run
● May 2 – St Bees 50 sportive
● May 29 – St Bees 5, 10 and 15k
● July 10 – Lakes and Valleys Sportive
● July 17 – Pushcart Derby
● September – West Lakes Cycling Festival
● Sept 25 – Ironmasters 5, 10 and 15k
● Oct 29 – Dash in the Dark
● Dec 4 – Santa Dash

But there are sure to be others organised throughout the year for everyone to have an opportunity to join in.
