Of course it's marathon weekend, but there are plenty of other opportunities to get out and about this Saturday and Sunday whilst helping local charities.

Each week, Bailiwick Wellbeing will be sharing a selection of sporty and community local events for you to get involved in.

Here are the top picks...

Where? Start from Les Quennevais Cycle Sports Centre

What? Macmillan Jersey is taking over Jersey parkrun on Saturday as part of its "Get Together for Good" week, which aims to bring islanders together, and celebrate the community spirit in the island all whilst benefitting islanders affected by cancer in any way.

Corn Riots Festival


When? Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 October

Where? Various locations around town including Parade Gardens and Royal Square.
