• Walkers Heath Park Marathon Success

    Marathon RunnersMichelle Vale and Sarah Benson from the Friends of Walkers Heath Park have been getting fit through the Active Parks scheme.  Sarah started participating in free activities at Walkers Heath Park in June with her children, by doing Community Fit. Michelle’s children also engaged with Active Parks first – mainly during the Football Summer Camp. Michelle then started Community Fit in August and joined the newly formed Beginner’s Running group.
    Sarah and Michelle then decided to train for the Birmingham Half Marathon under the guidance of Community Fit/Beginner’s Running instructor Kevin Oakes. On 20th October they achieved a time of 2 hrs 42 mins running the whole Marathon!
    A Big Well Done and Congratulations to Sarah and Michelle!
