We put Pearl to the test, to see how long she can run on a treadmill going 8mph.. the winner would upgrade their 3 month pass to the Southport Rec Centre to a full year. Matt Anderson was only four seconds off her time of 4 minutes and 44 seconds. A huge thanks goes to the Southport Rec Centre for letting us use their amazing facilities and a huge thanks also to everyone who came out.
