FAMILIES are reminded about the first BIG 3 in 1 this Sunday (23 APRIL).

Late entries can be made on the day and the event runs from 12noon – 4pm at Herrington Country Park.

This is a new event for the 2017 Active Sunderland BIG Events programme and the 3 in 1 is a fun run, bike ride and walk at the park.

It is designed for younger people and families and gives them the opportunity to have a go at one, two or all three of the 2017 BIG Event activities in one day.

Since they began five years ago, thousands of people have joined the BIG events programme with its runs, rides and walks.

Councillor John Kelly, Sunderland City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Public Health, Wellness and Culture said: “The BIG 3 in 1 is a fantastic new event for 2017.

“We want to see as many people as possible taking part so I would encourage anyone who has not entered to come along on Sunday and register on the day.”

As part of the BIG 3 in 1 walk, children can take part in the brand new scavenger hunt, a hands on experience collecting various objects as they go. The hunt is an opportunity to explore the park and learn more about its rich history and wildlife.

From 11am there are free family fun activities, including sports taster sessions.

Session include:
• Cricket
• Mini golf
• Touch rugby
• Football kick about
• Athletics
• Taekwondo
• Traditional family sports games
• Jittabugs

Entry is only £10per person and registration opens from 10.30am at the Active Sunderland Gazebo near the children’s play area within Herrington country Park. Cash transactions only can be taken on the day. The BIG 3 in 1 starts at 12noon and finishes at 4pm
