Run Talk Run exists to make both running and mental health support less intimidating, and more accessible.
So many of us suffer some kind of ‘imposter syndrome’ when it comes to our mental health, which can make it tricky to seek support.
You might have a feeling that you need somewhere to talk, but you don’t necessarily want to go to a GP or a therapist.
We think that peer support and community can help, and running does a rather lovely job at facilitating those conversations for us. There are so many reasons why running makes it easier to open up.
HOW IT WORKS
Run Talk Run is a weekly 5km gentle jog. Before every run there is a window of time to meet the other runners and say hello to the run leader. It’s alright if you’re a little anxious and quiet – we all ‘get it’ at Run Talk Run. The leader then explains the logistics of the route (reminding the group that the run is gentle and that there is no pressure to “keep up”), and that at the forefront of our runs is support… this really is a safe space to talk about how you’re really doing
