Try NHS 'Couch to 5km' training plan ahead of Eliot Fun Run - Sunday 10 July 2016

Eliot Fun Run 2016 Banner

George Eliot Hospital is holding its fantastic fourth fun 5km event on Sunday 10 July 2016 starting at 11am to support Orthopaedics patients at the hospital. Why not have a go at the incredible NHS Couch to 5km training plan and get fitter ahead of the run?

If you want to run the course and need a bit of motivation, this easy- to-do training plan can help you prepare for the fun run this summer. It requires nine weeks to complete (just in time for the Eliot Fun Run). George Eliot Hospital will also be providing healthy advice for everyone during the weeks leading up to the event on this website.

Everyone can take part in this year’s Eliot Fun Run whether you want to walk, jog or run the 5km course which starts outside the George Eliot Hospital Training and Education Centre (GETEC) next to the main hospital. All participants will receive a medal on the day for taking part.

Register today or sign up on the day for the event. The entrance fee is £5 for adults and £3 for children under 16. Dogs can take part for free if accompanied by a responsible owner. Please make cheques payable to 'George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust - Charitable Funds'.

Funds raised from the event will benefit the many patients who benefit from this busy service at the hospital which treats patients with injuries and conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system (the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves).

You may be referred to a trauma and orthopaedic consultant for treatment of an injury such as a bone fracture or a long-term condition that's developed over many years, such as osteoarthritis. 

Last year the event helped to benefit George Eliot Hospital’s Diabetes iDEA Fund (integrated Diabetes Education and Academic Research Centre) to further develop research into Diabetes and to educate patients and their families with Diabetes.
