Nissan this year announced a three-year partnership to supply the Nissan Micra as the official car for the Flora Women's Mini Marathon.

At the core of the Flora Women's Mini Marathon is their mission to encourage women in Ireland to engage in a healthy lifestyle by providing them with an event that they can train for and participate in – and continue keeping fit afterwards.

BALLOONS

The event caters for participants who wish to walk, jog or run for fun – while also attracting competitive runners.

With this in mind, and as part of this partnership, Nissan has teamed up with some of the other official partners of the Flora Women's Marathon, such as 2fm and the ISCP (Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists), to host a selection of fun family fitness events.

These events are designed in such a way that there is something on offer for everyone, from balloons and face-painting for children to a warm-up charity road race in Dulick, Ennis, Co Clare.

Last weekend saw Waterford host Shape-Up-Sunday. This Sunday, Windsor Airside will be hosting a Crossfit Fitness Event, where they will have two to four teams compete in a series of short, fast-paced events that challenge all aspects of fitness.

For three hours, the teams will go head-to-head in tests of strength, agility, speed, power and skill. Events will take place in the Windsor Motors showroom and, weather permitting, outside on the grass in front of the showroom.

Airside will also be hosting Yoga-4-All, who will be showing us how to flip and fly in their Anti-Gravity yoga hammock.

There will also be some short yoga class demonstrations to keep everyone supple, flexible and feeling good.

MASSAGE

After all this activity Heath Hayward, of Motion Physical Therapy, will also be on hand to perform sports massage for the competitors.

And there will be free relaxation massage for all attendees on the day as well as David Clancy from the ISCP.

Plus the 2fm Roadcaster will be broadcasting live throughout the afternoon

So if you are looking for something different to do this Sunday why not check it out. You can bring your friends and family and take part or simply cheer on those who are taking part.
