We had a great response to our free 8-week fitness programme that ran on and with the Irish Independent giving people exercise tips, nutritional advice, workouts and running plans created by Karl Henry. Health and wellbeing is a big focus for SPAR as we are constantly looking at ways to promote a healthy lifestyle in the home and community so we are very excited to have this opportunity for the people in the Cork region to get involved and to put what they learned with the SPAR Fitlive Programme to the test with our 5km Cork Airport Midnight Runway Run.”
