A FAMILY fitness day is being held in York this weekend.
The Just 30 Fair aims to inspire people of all ages to try new sports and fitness activities and discover more of what’s available in the city.
The City of York Council event will take place at Rowntree Park on Saturday, from noon to 5pm.
Councillor Sonja Crisp said: “The Just 30 Fair is set up to encourage everyone to do just 30 minutes exercise every day for a happier, healthier lifestyle.
“We’ve invited more than 30 sports clubs, leisure facilities, organisations, gyms and individual tutors and coaches give out advice and information.”
Most organisations will be staging try-it sessions, demonstrations and mini-games to join in.
Professional sports clubs like York City FC will be there alongside community clubs offering sub-aqua, aikido, bowls, volleyball, dance, yoga, running, boxing, kendo, Nordic walking, zumba and tennis. Visitors will also get the chance to try basketball, wheelchair basketball and hula hooping.
There will also be a mascot race withe the likes of Yorkie from York FC, Ronnie Rhino from the Leeds Rhinos, and Kernal, Fluffy and Donut from York Maze limbering up to challenge last year’s winner Snappy Crock. The race starts at 2pm.
