A FREE fun run in the village of Pleshey is being provided every two weeks by a fitness professional who is keen to help local people get fitter, feel better and make new friends.

The first run started last week and, after proving popular with local residents and some from further afield, will now take place each fortnight.

Russell Pearcy, of KB3 Kettlebell training, organised the three-mile course and it is attracting people regardless of age or fitness levels.

A personal and group trainer for 20 years, Mr Pearcy says that adding fun to keeping fit is the key to staying motivated to the cause.

He said: "I aim to create a lively friendly atmosphere by adding a few surprise elements to the course to make it a bit more interesting and a bit harder work, but these are being kept secret, you will have to turn up to find out what they are."

All participants are invited to the pub afterwards for a well earned drink, a bite to eat and a chance to recover.

For further details and a chance to join the next run on Sunday (February 1), contact Mr Pearcy on 07815 143951.
