Isaac Rocke, Sport Development Officer at Osterley Park commented: “We are keen to build on the success of the Osterley Park 10K last year and to encourage new people to come running in our beautiful park in one of the largest open spaces in West London.
“We ran some initial beginners groups last year at Osterley Park and are keen to continue them in 2015. The sessions are designed for all abilities and will focus on running technique, core stability work as well as running. It’s such a beautiful setting and we’d love to see some new faces.”
