#RUN AND TALK

Carolyn Barker is leading an initiative for the club to get involved in the rewarding program Run and Talk created by England Athletics and supported by the Charity Mind. The program has been created by EA with the aim of improving mental health through running in England.


The aim is to get people talking about mental health, sharing their experiences and removing stigma. Also to provide support and guidance to raise awareness of mental health problems. Supporting people experiencing mental health problems to be physically active through running, whether that is to support them in starting, returning to or continuing to run.
