This May sees Miles For Mind take place for the second year in a row, in an effort to raise awareness of Mental Health and the charity, Mind.
As a local business based in Southsea, runr want to reach out to local employers, and their employees, to see how they can support and encourage others to stay fit, both physically and mentally.
With Mental Health Awareness week taking place on the 13th - 19th May, the virtual running event Miles For Mind runs alongside it and runr want to encourage those that need to talk to have the confidence to do so.
Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. But hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling. Mind believe no-one should have to face a mental health problem alone and runr are supporting them in their mission to achieve this.
Mental health in the workplace
Mental health problems at work are common with at least one in six workers experiencing common mental health problems, including anxiety and depression.
Every employer depends on having healthy and productive employees – valued and supported staff are far more likely to deliver the best outcomes for your business.
If you want to attract and retain committed employees, prioritising the mental health of your staff needs to be core business in your organisation.

Miles For Mind 2019
So, with this in mind, runr are hosting Miles For Mind again and would love to get more people from the local community, and from local businesses, to take part.
runr are aiming to raise as much money & awareness for Mind as possible, so 100% of the profits from the event will go directly to the charity.
Simply choose your distance, from 25 to 200 miles, to cover - either walking, jogging or running in the month of May and you'll receive a medal after completion.
