A few months ago, some of our church family were runners in the Southampton 10km, half-marathon, and marathon events. Some got a taste for running, some inspired others to get started. We don’t want to stop!
So we’ve set up a social community #RunAndTalk run – not for chasing PB’s but for enjoying running with others in our local area. These runs are suitable for runners age 16+ , who can comfortably run for a minimum of 5km.
The runs will be a #RunAndTalk session, with the aim of improving mental health through running, by getting people talking about mental health, sharing experiences and removing stigma; providing support and guidance to raise awareness of mental health problems and to support people experiencing mental health problems through running. We aim to grow a community of local runners who will be supportive and encouraging to anyone who runs with us.
Join us on Mondays at 7.00pm, starting and finishing at the church.
