Walk at­tracts 100

Ellenbrook Advocate - - NEWS -

EL­LEN­BROOK res­i­dents have walked more than 340km as part of the City of Swan’s El­len­brook Win­ter Walk­ing Chal­lenge.

More than 100 res­i­dents took part in the chal­lenge, which ran through Au­gust, with res­i­dents en­cour­aged to com­plete as many laps of the El­len­brook Sports Hub precinct as pos­si­ble and record their re­sults via the City’s web­site.

Mayor Mick Wain­wright said the aim of the chal­lenge was to get peo­ple ac­tive dur­ing win­ter. “We all know how tempt­ing it can be to stay indoors when it is cold out­side, so we wanted to give the El­len­brook com­mu­nity an in­cen­tive to keep mov­ing, which they did de­spite some re­ally wet and wild weather,” he said.

“Not only did they get the ben­e­fits of all that ex­er­cise, but they also got the chance to go in the run­ning to win some fan­tas­tic prizes.”
