Fitness fanatics and novice joggers can now train, free on Tuesday afternoons at 16:45, and a trainer will be on call to assist. The training sessions have been popular and have attracted many interested runners.

When asked about the upcoming race, one runner said: “I’m excited to compete and I am looking forward to events like this in the future”.

The race will be split up into three sections: the 10km run, the walk, as well as the fun run.
