Run to Overcome, in association with Mental Health Mates, at the Vitality London 10,000
The Vitality London 10,000 is encouraging participants to #DoItForYou in 2023, and take part in the distance for their mental health and wellbeing.
The hugely popular 10K, taking place on Sunday 24 September, will welcome thousands to complete the distance on a spectacular course through central London, taking in some of the capital’s most famous landmarks.
The well-established mental health benefits of activity include improving self-esteem, stimulating chemical changes in the brain to boost mood, improving sleep and managing stress and anxiety.
This year, the goal is not just to #DoItForYou, but also to Run to Overcome.
The Run to Overcome wave
We're delighted to offer a special Run to Overcome wave, in association with Mental Health Mates, at the 2023 Vitality London 10,000 on Sunday 24 September in central London. This will be the final wave to set off in the mass participation event, with no pressure on participants to achieve a fast time – it’s all about running for your head and your heart and having fun in the process!
As part of this wave, you may even see Bryony Gordon, journalist and Mental Health Mates founder, and the inspirational Mental Health Mates community walking, jogging and running alongside you.
