The Park Club after funding from The Oxford Hub they are launching three new projects for people aged 14-19.
Blenheim 7K Fun Run
The 2020 Blenheim 7k fun run, Junior 1 mile run and 4 mile wheelchair/buggy event will be held at Blenheim Palace, Woodstock, Oxfordshire on 19 April 2020.
Blenheim Palace is the stunning backdrop to this spectacular run through the grounds including a lakeside 'off road' section. Run, jog or walk - this event is suited to serious runners and newbies alike. It is a challenging route, but you can go at your own pace.. And the scenery is unsurpassed.
There are three events to choose from: the main 7k, 4 miles for buggies and wheelchairs and 1 mile for under 15's.
You can run for charity, or for fun. And you can choose the charity you want to support, making this event ideal for fundraising for some of the smaller charities as well as the better known ones.
Individual and team prizes and a medal for all finishers.
You can spend the rest of the day enjoying the palace grounds. Bring a picnic or get refreshments at the cafes and restaurants.
Dancing has been shown to reduce stress and tension for the mind and body and also prevents heart disease. It has also been known to increase muscular strength, endurance, coordination and flexibility.
Sounds great, doesn't it?

Women's Walking Football
Women's Walking Football
Walking Football is a fantastic way to keep fit and to socialise within a team environment as well.
If you are female, over the age of 35 and wish to get / keep fit by playing football.
You don't need to have played football before; it could be a fresh start and a new way of getting regular exercise.
If there is enough interest the Walking Football team will try and arrange specific female only sessions at the Oxford Academy, Sandy Lane West where training takes place.
Meanwhile the Walking Football team remains open to all.
