Global running campaign to help kids get active returns to Liverpool

AROUND 650 primary school children joined forces in Liverpool this week for the '2016 INEOS GO Run For Fun™' event. Children from primary schools around Liverpool took part in the run at Wavertree Athletics Track, on Tuesday, 11 October 2016, cheered on by parents, friends and the 'GO Run For Fun' mascot, Dart.  The youngsters were joined by Team GB Olympian Kelly Massey, who won bronze as part of the 4 x 400m women's relay team in Rio.  Kelly said:- "It's great to be involved in an event like GO Run For Fun, to help inspire the next generation of sporting talent and to encourage more kids to get fit, healthy and active . You never know, there might even be a future Olympian in the mix!"

Having encouraged more than 166,000 children to get running through over 260 events so far, the GO Run For Fun campaign is the biggest children's running initiative in the world. By the end of this year it aims to encourage many more kids to get off the couch, give the TV a rest and get active. The 'GO Run For Fun'  campaign is the idea of Jim Ratcliffe, owner of INEOS, one of the UK's largest manufacturing companies, which announced a £1.5m donation spread over three years to encourage children to run for fun via the 'GO Run For Fun' charitable foundation. He explained:- "I'm passionate about getting as many children running early in their lives. The idea is simple; to get children out of the house having fun. It is not rocket science. Running is the basis of so many great sports. If our children can catch the running bug early, they're more likely to stick to it, and this can only lead to them having more active and healthier lifestyles in the future."

'GO Run For Fun'
will continue to tour the UK throughout the year with other events planned for Worthing, Portsmouth and Mansfield, as well as internationally across the US and Europe.
