We want you to run for Mental Health

30 Apr We want you to run for Mental Health

Social isolation has made a massive impact on all of our lives, so there is no better time to take advantage of the positive impact that exercise has on our mental well-being.

The restrictions have resulted in the cancellation of community sport and many social sporting events. Often these events are great ways to motivate people to exercise and we don’t want this to change.

Time to challenge yourself and sign up to the SportsFit Isolation Fun Run. Together (in isolation) we can make a difference.
