A SPECIAL run has been organised at Locke Park to encourage locals to work together to be more active.

The 'Together Run' organised by the South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is signing up both experienced runners and newcomers to join in the run that will start at Locke Park and go to Worsborough Mill, Dearne Valley Park and finish at Oakwell Stadium.

The event, on June 8, has various courses available from one mile to eight miles.

Jane Baker, physical activity assistant with the team, said: "It’s not about how fast or how far you run, but taking part in an activity that everyone can enjoy together. The run as well as the other activities are taking part during the Jubilee week to take advantage of the school holiday and national bank holidays to give children and families the opportunity to get involved together."

All the stages of the run are free and open to everyone. Those wanting to take part must pre-register. To find out more or to book your place contact Jane Baker on 01226 434784 or email jane.baker9@nhs.net.
