Why running is good for us

Bury Running Festival
Bury Running Festival is brought to Bury by Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All, in partnership with Bury Council.
It is a great way for families and friends of all ages and abilities to stay active and healthy together, while also providing a great opportunity for participants to fundraise for one of the event’s charity partners or a charity close to their heart.
