GM Health professionals lead the way…

On Saturday 26 May this group of health professionals from across Greater Manchester met up to run in one of the weekly Saturday morning 5k parkruns held at Sale Water Park.

The group consisted of NHS workers who regularly enjoy the benefits of exercise, fresh air and the company of fellow participants.

If you would like to take part in a similar event why not join in on Saturday 9 June when the NHS and parkrun UK will jointly host ‘NHS70 parkrun day’ to mark the NHS’s 70th birthday.

Launched by double Olympic gold medallist Dame Kelly Holmes, more than 160 local parkruns, including Sale Waterpark and Stretford Park will be hosting special events to celebrate the contribution of the NHS to the nation, whilst encouraging everybody to get active.

All the events are free to enter, for more information, including details of participating parkruns near to you visit:
