Inaugural fun run hailed a success by organisers
by Tom Martin

THE first ever Active Sefton Festive Fun Run took place in Waterloo with runners taking on a 5k race.

The event, organised by Sefton Council’s Everybody Active and Active Workforce teams, was held at Crosby Lakeside Centre.

Plenty of competitors got into the Christmas spirit and donned festive fancy dress for the occasion, with Christmas turkeys, an elf and a Christmas tree all racing on the day.

As well as the 5k race, there was also a chance for families to walk a 1k distance.

Cllr Ian Moncur, Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: “The first Festive Fun Run was a fantastic success and it was great to see some many people getting into the Christmas spirit with a good, healthy race!

 ”It was a great day at Crosby Lakeside and we have already some fantastic feedback on social media. The team worked really hard to put together the event and deserve plenty of recognition for their efforts on the day too.

 “I hope everyone has an enjoyable Christmas and New Year and I look forward to seeing plenty of familiar faces at our events in 2016.”
