To celebrate International Day of Families Halo are offering local people the chance to enjoy a family swim, game of racket sports or Indoor Climbing session for just £5.

We’re taking over the city’s beautiful racecourse on Sunday July 30th for the newest obstacle course race in the national calendar.
