A RUNNING club has received an award for encouraging residents to take up the discipline.
Chelmsford and Wickford Dynamos has been given the prestigious Group of the Year accolade at the East Regional England Athletics Awards.
The group started in November last year recognising that a safe, sociable and supportive group could help reintroduce people to running.
Gary Sullivan OBE, chairman of Active Essex, which encourages the county’s residents into fitness, said: “It’s great to know that the Chelmsford and Wickford Dynamos are being recognised for all the work and dedication they put in to their clubs and for encouraging more people to take up running in the county.”
Ann Naylor, Essex County Council’s public health and wellbeing boss, added: “Running is a great way to stay fit and healthy.
"It is an easy sport to get into and if you need the extra support Active Essex can offer it through the various clubs, groups and activities across the county.”
