3 in 1 and Active fun for all

Entries are open for Active Sunderland's BIG 3 in 1 event in a month's time.

The BIG 3 in 1 is a new event for 2017 and will includes a fun run, bike ride and walk.

Designed for younger people and families, it gives everyone the opportunity to have a go at one, two or all three of the 2017 BIG Event activities in one day. 

The BIG 3 in 1 is at Herrington Country Park on Sunday 23 April starting at 12noon. Within the boundaries of the park children and families can take part in a 3km bike ride, a 1.8km walk and 1.5km run.

Sunderland City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Public Health, Wellness and Culture, Councillor John Kelly said: "The Active Sunderland BIG 3 in 1 is a fantastic new event for 2017, designed in the main for children as they can have a go at three events in one afternoon.

"As well as the bike ride, walk and run there is also a fantastic programme of fun family activities for everyone."

As part of the BIG 3 in 1 walk, children can join a new scavenger hunt, a hands-on experience collecting various objects as they go.

It’s a fantastic opportunity to explore the park and discover and learn more about its rich history and wildlife.

The family activities on offer on the day include sports taster sessions provided by community sports clubs and activities for people of all ages, such as: football, rugby, mini golf, volleyball, trampolining, and traditional sports day games family activities.

First launched in 2012 as part of the Olympic year, thousands of people from in and outside Sunderland have since taken part in BIG events.

Last year more than 5,000 people joined a BIG event.

Entry is only £10 per child with accompany adults free, Under 8s must be accompanied by an adult (£10 entry includes an Active Sunderland t-shirt, medal and goody bag.)
