There were warnings today that more needs to be done to encourage people to take part in regular exercise.
Organisers at a running event in the Chew Valley near Bristol say around a third of the population only completes 30 minutes exercise a week - well below the Government's recommendation.
So today they were promoting healthy living for all ages. Kevin Langdon reports:
Campaigners say that plans for an asbestos landfill in a quarry in Chew Valley would be bad for the environment.
Bristol Water have also said the water quality in Chew Valley Lake would be affected.
