THE City of Swan is encouraging Ellenbrook residents to stay fit and active during winter by setting the Ellenbrook Winter Walking Challenge.

The challenge, which kicks off on August 1, encourages residents to walk as many laps of the Ellenbrook Sports Hub precinct as they can during August.

Mayor Mick Wainwright said the challenge would keep residents fit and they could also win prizes.

“I hope the community jumps on board and gets involved in this challenge.

“It’s a great way to stay active and spend time with friends, family and the community,” he said.

“Regular exercise is not just good for your body, it is good for your mind and when you take part in something like this, there is also a sense of camaraderie that can keep you going, even if it is freezing outside.”

To enter the challenge, you just have to start walking and make sure you record the number of laps you complete each day via the City’s website.

You will also need the daily code word, which will be placed in a secret location on the walking trail each day.
