Practice Run – Wednesday 21 August 2019

Dear Patients,

Our practice team invites you to join us in a practice run on Wednesday 21 August 2019 at 6.30pm. We will meet at The Loxford Practice and walk together to Barking Park, where the run will take place.

The aim of the run is to improve the health and wellbeing of our patients, carers and practice staff. You can run as much or as little as you wish, and if you prefer to walk, some of our team will walk with you.

Running is free, you can do it anywhere, and it burns more calories than any other mainstream exercise.

Regular running can reduce your risk of long-term illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke. It can also boost your mood and keep your weight under control (

By engaging in running together, this also helps us to develop and nurture our local community and environment that is centred around wellness generation. This activity also helps us to ensure we support the UK-wide movement of social prescribing activities.
