A charity treadmill trek to boost the funds of Cancer Research UK will be held at Cotswold Leisure Cirencester later this month.

On Tuesday November 25th, staff and members at the Tetbury Road leisure centre will all take a turn on one of the gym’s treadmills in an attempt to keep it running, non-stop, from 6.30am to 10pm.

Both the staff and members of the centre will be able to book one of 62 slots on the treadmill in 15-minute intervals, before handing over to a work colleague or friend when their time is up.

Staff will also wear pink accessories – such as wigs, sweat-bands, and caps – to promote the fund-raising theme of the day, and donation buckets will be available on the reception desk and in the gym so the public can contribute.

Leisure centre staff hope to raise £250 for the charity from the event.

If you would like to take part in the treadmill challenge or would like more information on any of the leisure centre’s courses or events, please contact the centre on 01285 654057.
