New Trail Running and Wobble Board sessions launched in Malvern to help people get active

PEOPLE can get active with two new fitness programmes which are being launched in Malvern.

Trail Running begins on Monday, November 8, and new Wobble Board Workout classes start on November 16.

The sessions – aimed at improving people’s health and wellbeing – are provided by Malvern Hills District Council.

The six-week Trail Running – taking place at The Wyche and British Camp – costs £20 and is aimed at those who are comfortable to run non-stop for 40 minutes. It takes runners along scenic routes around the district and teaches trail running techniques to help conquer hills and tackle technical uneven descents.

Wobble Board Workout is a new strength and balance workout using a wobble board and costs £4.50 on a ‘pay as you go’ basis or £16 for four weeks. Taking place at Upton Hill Centre, the four week course will help to improve balance, core and leg strength, and shoulder mobility.

Both programmes will be fully supported by MHDC’s Physical Activity and Wellbeing Officer Rachel Nicholls who will provide support and advice throughout the sessions.

Coun Tom Wells, the council’s Portfolio Holder for Community Services, said everyone was really looking forward to the exciting new classes starting.

“The programmes are tailored to people’s own level of ability so progress can be at individual paces.

“Health and wellbeing is so important and we hope people enjoy all the benefits the classes have to offer.”
