​Win prizes and get fit in 10k challenge

by timpickstone on 12 August, 2020

Residents are being invited to walk or run 10k and be in with a chance to win prizes.

The September challenge has been set by the Bury Live Well Service and is open to everyone in the borough aged over 16.

Top prize is a six-month Active Lifestyles Membership with Bury Leisure, with four prizes of free entry to the Run For All Bury 10k race next year. 

To participate in the My Bury 10K event, simply complete a 10K circuit (walking or running, or a combination of both) within Bury anytime during the month of September and post/tweet your evidence (e.g. screenshot map of the walk/run including date and distance) on social media using the event hashtag #MyBury10K.

N.B. To be entered into the prize draw, participants must “Like” or “Follow” Bury Leisure on Facebook ( or Twitter (@BuryLeisure).

The challenge complements a 20-week Walk to Run Campaign on social media, which is currently in its final phase following an eight-week 5-10K programme, after already completing an introduction to Brisk Walking and more recently a 9-week Couch to 5K programme. For top tips and week-by-week programme instruction, participants should follow the 

Walk to Run Campaign on Facebook (Bury Be Part Of It) and Twitter (Bury Live Well Service).
