Active Workforce

Organised Events

We offer several popular events across the year for anyone to take part in. These are a great way to get motivated, giving individuals or staff teams a goal to work towards. Tournaments allow teams to compete against other organisations, whilst other activities such as our Monthly Challenges are great for internal competitions!

5k Challenge

Active Workforce

Whether you're a seasoned runner or a beginner, our 5k is a great event to complete.  You can run, jog or walk this event.  We use 2 locations, Crosby Lakeside and Princes Park, Southport. 


Active Workforce

The Duathlon is a three-stage event, involving 1.5km Run - 5km Cycle - 1.5km Run. The event is held at Litherland Sports Park twice a year on the running and cycle tracks. Bikes are available to hire on request. This event is perfect if you are thinking of doing an event for the first time or wanting to try something different other than running.

Mixed Netball

Active Workforce

Our Mixed Netball Tournament is a great way to either try out a new sport, relive your childhood or enter as an office team with work colleagues.  Teams of 7-10 people compete together against each other.  Each team must have at least 1 male on the court at all times.  We hold 1 event throughout the year in April at Litherland Sports Park.  


Mixed Netball Tournament 2022

Congratulations to everyone who braved the weather and took part in last night’s Mixed Netball Tournament. We hope you all enjoyed it and found a new love for the sport. It was great to see so many people who hadn’t played since school enjoying themselves, and for the men who many hadn’t played at all! 


The competition was won by the staff at Formby High who beat Active Sefton in a very close final. We hope to see you all again next April!

Mixed Football

Active Workforce

A recent addition to Active Workforce is a mixed 5-a-side Football Tournament.

Join in with work colleagues, friends and family to compete in this fun tournament.  Teams can be all male, all female or mixed.


On the night we have group stages followed by semi-finals and the final, the winning team will receive a trophy.

Monthly Challenges

For more information or to register on next Month's Challenge please email us on:

Our Monthly Challenges is a great way to encourage employees to increase their physical activity, improve their health and create an incentive for them to work towards. 

Each month we set a new challenge.


In September, we challenge you to join us for our Fitness Week.  National Fitness Day 2023 will take place on Wednesday 20th September and is a chance to highlight the role physical activity plays across the UK, helping us raise awareness of its importance in assisting us to lead healthier lifestyles through being physical active.


Join Active Workforce every day for a week as 1 day just is not enough and take part in lots of different activities during our Fitness week:



Active Workforce

Active Workforce teamed up with Public Health and Parks & Greenspace, to set up 2 parkrun’s in Sefton. These are FREE 5K runs every Saturday at 9am. To join in, you just need to register on the parkrun website where you will be issued a bar code. Simply take this bar code to whichever parkrun you want to go to, and they will let you know your time and position after the end of the race.


Crosby parkrun starts by Crosby Leisure Centre, Mariners Road, Crosby, L23 6SX.

Southport parkrun starts at Hesketh Park, Park Crescent, Southport, PR9 9JN.

Crosby parkrun 

Each parkrun is ran by a team of volunteers who give up their Saturday mornings every week to organise the event, creating an opportunity for anyone and everyone to compete in a 5km course, and at the same time, providing support and encouragement to all who take part.

Jan Mullin, Crosby parkrun Event Director, has given up her time to commit herself every Saturday since it started:

“We have just gone from strength to strength since we started and are now sometimes seeing over 200 people take part. Crosby parkrun has a great inclusive team of volunteers from all across the community including pensioners and young people still at school, there are a number of different roles which need to be covered each week and we would welcome anyone who would like to get involved, we can promise some good times and cake! We’re so happy we can offer this opportunity for people, every week we experience so much positive feedback and hear so many positive stories. We like to think we create an approachable community down here at Crosby parkrun where everyone feels welcome.”
