THERE’S still time to sign up for this year’s Active Challenge at Knowsley Hall.

On May 23, scores of local people will take on either a 3km or 8km walk, a 2km run for younger children or a 5km run for adults.

Organised by Knowsley Council and NHS Knowsley, the closing date for entries is May 16.

All the events are free to enter - apart from the 5km event for adults, which costs £7 per person.

All routes apart from the 8km walk are also wheelchair friendly.

The 2km run is aimed at youngsters in the school years 3-11.

Anybody can take part - regardless of their level of fitness - and they can enter as a team from their place of work, as a family or on their own.

Although the challenge is an annual event, this is the first time it has ever been held in the evening and included free entertainment.

To find out more or order an entry form, call Peter Green on 0151 443 2120 or email: peter.green@knowsley.gov.uk
