Leg it Lancashire

What is it?

Leg it Lancashire is the all-encompassing support offer for Beginner Running across the County.

Who is it for?

Lancashire Sport Partnership works with a number of partners; England Athletics, Educational Establishments, Workplaces, Community Groups, Mums groups and so on, to encourage individuals from 12 years+ to create a healthier lifestyle through running.

They currently have a database of over 230 Run Leaders (approx. 80% female), which equates to over 100 groups and 2,000 runners.

The majority of the make-up of these groups are females (approx. 90%) so Leg it Lancashire is a real opportunity to engage female participation in sport and physical activity.
