World Mental Health Day

October 10th is World Mental Health Day and even though we cannot hold a group event like last year, the Mental Health Champions are asking Burnden Roadrunners to do just one thing: go for a run with a difference! Leave your watch at home, forget about pace, time, distance or PB’s and simply go for a run! While you are out running you could do one or all of the following:

  • Wear something green to represent mental health awareness.
  • Take a photo of something unusual, attractive, or inspiring that you see on your run.
  • Take a photo of your favourite thing on your favourite route – a tree, building, view, bridge etc.
  • Make a short video of you running in your favourite area.
  • Make a short video and tell us why you love running and what running means to your mental health.
  • Walk or run your favourite route with a member of your household and show them the places you go when you run. Take a photo together on the route.
  • Write a few lines explaining the reasons why you love running.
  • Do anything else that inspires you!

When you have completed your run, please post the pictures and videos on the Burnden Members Facebook page, or email them to Burnden Roadrunners (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Lawrence will collate them and create a montage of Burnden Roadrunners celebrating World Mental Health Day 2020, which will be posted on our website and on Facebook on the 10th October. 

Please remember to observe the local rules for Bolton and run on your own or with members of your household or bubble group only. Take off your watch, put on your shoes and get running!
