Solo Half Marathon

Create Your Own

Join us and help create a mentally healthier world

WHAT:
We ask you to join our Solo Half Marathon challenge to raise much-needed awareness for mental health during these unprecedented times. We want to promote social distancing so, just pick a safe stretch of road (or trail), choose a route that is at least 21 km long, and let it rip at your own pace.

WHEN:
Saturday 13th of June 2020

WHY:
Our community is suffering a pandemic of mental stress. Due to COVID-19, health workers are putting their lives on the line, families and friends losing loved ones due to the virus, people isolated at home, and having limited access to support services. National supporting lines are reaching 40% more calls than normal, and experts are predicting a rise in suicide rates, learning from previous pandemic patterns.
We hope to raise a level of awareness of the current situation and reduce the impact of those affected in the community far and wide.

SUPPORT:
Please make mental health a priority and;
1. Sign up to the Solo Half Marathon challenge and join our Facebook event here: https://bit.ly/2KLDF78
2. Create awareness via your social channels by sharing this event or the images here: https://bit.ly/2zEztnl
3. Stay healthy and safe

MERCHANDISE: 
By popular demand, we have treated you with some event t-shirts that are available to purchase. 100% of the profits will be going to our beloved friends at Black Dog Institute. http://walkingabouttalking.deco-apparel.com/
