Just when you thought it was all about the running at Vitality Westminster Mile and London 10,000 this weekend (28-29 May), the headline sponsors remind us about the attractions of the Vitality Wellness Festival. Whether you are running, supporting someone or just curious, there are free activities for all in London's Green Park on Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday.
All's Well At Vitality Wellness Festival
The aim of Vitality Wellness Festival is to provide something of interest to everyone, with lots of child and adult-friendly activities, brilliant giveaways and practical tips on how to stay fit and healthy. This free, two-day weekend festival really has it all: football, cricket and netball coaching; high-energy dance classes; relaxing yoga sessions; a Kids’ Zone; a health check area; a live DJ; delicious food stands; prizes galore and plenty more.
Active families will enjoy the Sports Zone, with coaching clinics from Arsenal Soccer Schools, England Netball and Middlesex County Cricket Club. However, the star attraction is likely to be 'Tumbleator', a giant treadmill with challenges running throughout the day. Don’t miss your chance to test your pace against a mascot at 12:30pm.
Virgin Active will be providing high-energy dance and exercise classes as well as relaxing yoga, Pilates and calming meditation sessions. The resident DJ at the Bandstand will keep you up to date and interview special guests from the events, as well as spinning a few tunes to keep the party atmosphere going.
A range of delicious hot and cold food will be available in the Vitality picnic area, including lots of tasty healthy options. Why not try out one of the cycle smoothie bikes for a free smoothie?
The Vitality Hub is worth a visit for a free health check from BMI Healthcare and a chance to win great prizes from Vitality and their partners. All classes and activities are first come first served.
