Running & Fitness group for members of Bexley Mencap and their friends and family

About our group

This group started as a pilot project for Mencap in May 2014 and has continued ever since. The sessions offer running and fitness for members of Bexley Mencap and their friends and family.

In the summer the sessions are outdoors in Danson Park and in the winter they are indoors at Crook Log Leisure Centre.

The group attend events together such as the Greenwich & Bexley Hospice annual Santa Dash in Danson Park.

We are in training for the Myra Garrett 10k run and 3k Fun run on 23 July 2017 around Danson Park, hosted by Bexley Athletic Club. The club has very kindly agreed to sponsor Bexley Mencap and will being making a donation for every runner who enters either run.

There will be medal for all finishers and a special trophy for the first Bexley Mencap runner in the 3k Fun Run.

So plenty to train for and have fun getting fit at the same time! With all this training, as the days get lighter so do we!

An extra special welcome to Emmanuel, Luke and Max who have recently joined the group.
