Due to the cancellation of the Senior Games 2020 as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we have decided to try and run an alternative programme. This programme will aim to encourage the older members of Salisbury to get active and help us complete a set challenge (or two), while also raising awareness of the Senior Games, both last year’s edition as well as the plan for next years.
It's a way of training ourselves (at our own pace) to be ready for next years Senior Games event, with medals and certificates offered to those who help us complete a significant number of steps towards our target (for example 10,000 steps). Our target will be to complete the London Marathon (61,000 steps) to begin with. If this goes well, there is also scope to add in a second walking target (maybe Edinburgh Marathon), and if we get enough people, we could even go big and attempt Lands End to John O'Groats!
So come join us and help us achieve this goal!
