In cooperation with the local newspaper, North West Evening Mail, Barrow Borough Council, the local civic association, Friends of Walney, and Walney Offshore Windfarms invited the residents to a 5.1km running event – the Walney Fun Run.
With the many wind turbines in the background, the 5.1km route was on roads and paths along the coast of the isle of Walney, which is the closest neighbour to the Walney 1 wind farm.
