Fam­ily fit­ness day in park

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

A FAM­ILY-FRIENDLY fit­ness day in the park will be held on Satur­day as the Port Dou­glas So­lar Eclipse Marathon train­ing squad host a fun run to warm up for the main event.

The fun run has an Olympics dress up theme in hon­our of the 2012 Lon­don Olympics, which also starts on the week­end.

Or­gan­iser Nick Car­ling said there are three run op­tions, 1km, 3km and 5km for ev­ery­one of all fit­ness lev­els to join in and help raise money for the PDSEM train­ing squad.

“It’s a fundraiser to raise funds for the train­ing squad to put on full train­ing for free to im­prove fit­ness and get in­volved in the marathon or half marathon,” he said.

“We’ve hired a pro­fes­sional coach to put a pro­gram to­gether and rais­ing cash for that and also it’s a good chance for peo­ple to get in­volved in the fun run and not have to go to Cairns.

“Dress up in green or gold or from what­ever coun­try you come from, in gym­nas­tic stuff or Speedos and have fun, there’s also go­ing to be a cou­ple of free fit­ness classes after­wards for those who want to stay around and join in.”

Reg­is­tra­tion is at 6.30am at Rex Smeal Park, the 5km run costs $15 and starts at 7.30am, 3km is $10 and starts at 7.35am and the 1km is 45 and starts at 7.40am and then at 8.30am there is a group Kick and 9.30am Group Cen­tergy classes.

To re-en­er­gise af­ter the fit­ness and fun, Coles is sup­ply­ing a bar­be­cue break­fast for ev­ery­one.
