As those responsible for the nation’s health express their concerns about sedentary lifestyles, obesity and early onset type-two diabetes, it was heartwarming to witness events for both sexes, all ages, and all abilities, being supported by family members and volunteers in the pursuit of an activity that brings new friendships and healthy competition along with a sense of personal achievement.

Well done to all of those involved.
