Running champ leads club

THE winner of a Broxtowe running event is encouraging people to join a walking group in Brinsley to get fit.

Eastwood runner Steven Capewell will lead the group and is drawing on his own experience to encourage local people to get active for the New Year.

“I really enjoy running and can’t describe how good it makes me feel,” said Steve. “Becoming a running leader and helping at the Brinsley running group has given me the opportunity to put my skills to use by helping other people.”

The group meets at 6.30pm every Monday at Brinsley Recreation Ground.

Each session is designed for participants with little or no running experience.

No booking is necessary and people should wear comfortable clothing and trainers. For more information, call 0115 917 3572.
