Families are being urged to get their trainers on and get active for a good cause.

A Subway Helping Hearts Family 5k will take place on Sunday, September 28, in Blackpool’s Stanley Park – organised by local Subway franchisee Anne Wade and business partner, Dancing on Ice star, Dan Whiston.

The 5k fun run is part of a series across the country, in aid of Heart Research UK and the Subway Healthy Heart grant scheme, while encouraging families to lead a healthier lifestyle and be active. It is open to all ages and abilities and people can walk, jog or run around the course, with free entry for children under 12.

The event will take place between noon and 3pm.

Anne said: “The family 5k series started last year and has now expanded and we are bringing it to Blackpool. It’s going to be a fun day, with activities like a bouncy castle, face-painting and games.”
