On Friday 1 July Forth Valley Recovery Community will host the 2022 Forth Valley Recovery Olympics at Forthbank Stadium. With support from Active Stirling this will be the largest Recovery Olympics since the event was established in 2016, with around 400 participants and spectators expected to attend.

The Recovery Olympics are organised to celebrate individual and group recovery across Scotland in a ‘Sports Day’ style event that has a focus on fun and competition. This is a fantastic event to celebrate the recovery of all those involved and to get involved in sport and physical activity.

Events will include Relays, Egg & Spoon Race, Sack Race, Three-legged race, Sprint Race, Soft Archery, Hungry Hippos and concludes with the always popular Tug-of-war race. With mini games and activities also available for children.

I have been supporting Forth Valley Recovery Community with this event for a number of years and it is great to be involved again this year. Usually, it takes place at the Mayfield Centre but the move to Forthbank Stadium this year means we can make it bigger and better. It is great to see everyone taking part at this event and I am looking forward to seeing everyone get involved and getting physically active
