Following the success of 'Run East Durham' East Durham Trust announced the creation of Console to 5K!
Funded by Community Foundation, Console to 5K aimed to improve young people's health and wellbeing by increasing their levels of physical activity. Three local community groups established FREE regular exercise activities for a period of at least 10 weeks, before all three groups came together on Sunday 23rd February 2020 for a 5K run to celebrate their achievements and have some fun.
The project proved to be a fantastic opportunity for young people across East Durham to make new friends and start their new year more physically fit and active.
Following the successful race on the 23rd, you can view the results here or view the image below.

WHAT WE DO
We help the communities of the former district of Easington which is made up 20 distinct areas, most of which are former Pit villages that continue to be hugely affected by deprivation following the closure of the Pits. We run a wide range of projects to help the community fight disadvantage including food parcels, telephone befriending for the socially isolated, helping people in the downward spiral of debt, supporting people to get the benefits they deserve, providing holiday activities with food, getting the disengaged engaged with the arts and more.
