A new running club, called The Rushens, will meet for the first time on Saturday, September 14 and is aimed at all abilities – from the committed jogger to those who are really more interested in strolling.
This is the latest Southern Communities Initiatives (SCI) project and the club meets at Thie Rosien (the old Southlands), Four Roads, Castletown Road, Port Erin at 9.30am with an 11am finish.
‘The emphasis is not on competitive running but personal fitness and socialising,’ said SCI co-ordinator Janet Bridle.
‘The session will start with a guided warm up led by experienced coaches followed by a gentle run (or walk) to Port St Mary prom. ‘That might be all you want to do to begin with, but for those who are up for it there is a choice of three different runs that have been ranked short, medium and long. Each route finishes back at Thie Rosien for some stretching and refreshments.’
SCI has teamed up with the Sports Development unit at the National Sports Centre in Douglas to provide the south with a social club that encourages people to reap the benefits of getting fitter and healthier and meeting like minded people.
