The Herts Sports and Physical Activity Partnership is currently formulating its Strategic Plan for the 2021-25 period, with a proposed June launch date.
The new strategy will build on the existing Strategic Plan, which has served the Partnership well over recent years and will seek to build on Uniting The Movement – Sport England’s recently launched strategy, which sets out its aims and aspirations for the next decade.
Spartan SHARON CROWLEY has completed another National Trail virtually. This time it was the North Downs Way (virtual) 250 kilometres / 150 miles from Farnham in Surrey to Dover in Kent (where Sharon was born) then up to Canterbury. Sharon was pleased to finish with 10 days to spare. All her actual running and walking was local!
Hertfordshire County Council has joined forces with the Herts Sports Partnership and the Hertfordshire Community Foundation, to organise a programme for the forthcoming Easter Holidays aimed at countering the triple inequalities facing Hertfordshire’s most disadvantaged young people – holiday hunger, physical inactivity and social isolation.
Today we're focusing on Covid Recovery. We hear so much about how to stay active and alleviate stress, boredom and poor mental health during lockdown, but what about the other side of the coin? What if you have suffered from coronavirus, and are now more fatigued than you thought imaginable? What if all of the online exercise, get outdoors, move more messages feel all too unachievable right now?
Fourteen Spartans took up the Coast of England Virtual Challenge organised by ResultsBase to give their training a continued focus through lockdown and beyond, aiming to complete the 2970 kilometres around the coast of England by the 31st December 2021, competing at their own pace, fast or slow, on a bike, or walk, a run or swim. The challenge began in Bristol near the Severn Estuary and started by tackling the south coast path around Somerset, Devon and Cornwall.
