Take a Plod in park for scenic route.

Runners of all abilities are invited to take part in a five-mile challenge at Barry's picturesque Porthkerry Country Park.

The second LifeStyle Porthkerry Plod, organised in association with Penarth and Dinas Runners, takes place on Sunday, April 29 at 10am.

It is hoped the resounding success of last year's inaugural event will ensure even more runners on the start line.

The scenic course will take runners along open fields, roads, woodland and coastal paths 13 offering extra incentive to leap out of bed on a Sunday morning for a prompt start.

LifeStyle Health and Fitness has a range of memberships at the Vale of Glamorgan Council's state of the art gyms in Barry, Cowbridge, Llantwit Major and Penarth leisure centres, and staff and customers will be among the entrants.

LifeStyle operations manager Jon Rogers urges everyone to consider taking up the challenge.

He said: 'Our team can put together a personal training programme for the Porthkerry Plod.

'The first 200 people to pay and enter also receive a LifeStyle T-shirt.'

Entry is pounds 6 for LifeStyle and affiliated members or pounds 7 for unaffiliated members.

To enter, telephone Andrew, from Penarth & Dinas Runners, on 07879 060 270.
