Inspired by the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Charterhouse Club launches a new Legacy Challenge on Saturday September 22 in Godalming.


The Clubs long-term initiative, backed by Godalming Town Council, will enable people of all ages and abilities to become more active.


The Mayor of Godalming, Cllr Liz Wheatley, and local Olympic hopeful Adelle Tracy are expected to make special appearances and participate in the launch celebrations.


Experienced fitness instructors from the Club, located at Charterhouse, will encourage people to take part in a range of free activities from 9am to 2pm.


Participants, young and old, will be provided with information about the Legacy Challenge and a free ActiveOMeter so that they can measure their activity levels and discover how important it is to get moving.


Charterhouse Club invited Surrey athlete Adelle Tracey to become an Ambassador for the Legacy Challenge as she is a great role model for young people.


The 19-year-old runner, who receives ongoing support from the Club and access to its training facilities, helped to light the Flame of Unity during the London 2012 opening ceremony.


Having won 800m silver for Great Britain in the European Youth Olympic Festival in Finland, Adelle has her sights set on competing at the 2016 Olympic Games.
