Mental & Physical Health

It is proven that regular exercise relieves tension and stress, boosts energy and mental health and enhances well-being. We know from experience that when participants sign up for an event and set a goal, they are far more likely to keep up with regular training. Running undoubtedly improves health and can unite local communities by encouraging involvement and promoting positivity.
