Alan Keane, Senior Health & Physical Activity Development Officer at Oldham Community Leisure, said: "
This is the 5th Run4Fun and every year it gets bigger and better. Its great to be able to organise such a fun-filled day and getting people of all abilities out in the fresh air and exercising together as a family - the atmosphere is always fantastic. There are people of all shapes and sizes, from pensioners to toddlers, and everyone finishes with a smile on their face. Exercising regularly is something we all know we should do more of, and we will always look to support these kinds of events that help get people motivated".

Neil Charlesworth, Director of Community 1st Oldham said:
“Community 1st Oldham is proud to support this event. We are dedicated to delivering modern health and community facilities in the Oldham area which really meet the needs of the communities in which they are located, and by working on the Run4Fun activities we hope to deliver events that will bring communities together to have fun and get fit.”
