Following a recent announcement , the early May Bank Holiday date will be moved to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day, therefore we have decided to move the date of the Mid Sussex Marathon Weekend 2020 to the late bank holiday weekend in May.
We can confirm the event will now take place on the following dates;
Saturday 23rd May 2020: East Grinstead 10 Mile
Sunday 24th May 2020: Haywards Heath 10 Mile
Monday 25th May 2020: Burgess Hill 10K
The Mid Sussex Family Fun Run and Junior Mile Races will also take place on each day of the event.
It’s well documented that running is good for mental health. Relieving stress, improving sleep and boosting your mood are just some of the many benefits. So, for Mental Health Awareness Week here are 5 ways you can get involved in running;
2. If a local running group is not for you, then try an online running community such as The Lonely Goat Running Club. MSMW 2019 runner Rob, who was running for mental health,says the online community “offers great support”. We think that’s a fab idea!
3. If you’re totally new to running, try a ParkRun. Taking place all over the country they are open to everyone, free, safe and easy to take part in. Events take place in pleasant parkland surroundings and they encourage people of every ability to take part.
4. Check out your local Wellbeing Service, who offer support and guidance on a range of services, including how to start running.
5. If you feel you are not ready to start running, you can still be part of the community by volunteering to help at local events. Many running events can only take place because of the support of the amazing people who give up their time to volunteer. For inspiration, read out volunteer stories here.
