Sandbach 10k 2023
Earlier this year we decided that we wanted to get involved and support a local fitness event, and straight away the one that sprung to mind was the Sandbach 10k taking place in August, less than two miles away from our gym located by Sandbach train station.
So we organised with Sandbach Striders for TRAIN to sponsor the event, and in the lead up to this, we encouraged our own members to sign up too! Our classes then prepared our members for race day with a combination of strength and fitness elements that also included running!
On the day of the event, TRAIN provided the 400 runners with their pre race warm up, with some light stretching and dynamic movements to get everyone moving. Plus we incorporated a squat Mexican wave! A combination of members and coaches from the gym made up our three TRAIN pacesetters, meaning runners could try and follow them knowing what pace they were running at, and the time they would finish in.
TRAIN had over 20 members take part in the Sandbach 10k and for a few of them, this was their first ever race of this distance!
Sandbach Striders who organised the event managed to raise £2268 for their chosen club charity, Chance Changing Lives.
Keep an eye out for us next year too!
