SAVE THE DATE As #Run&Talk supports Time to Talk Day - 7th February
During the week of 2nd-8th February 2019 England Athletics, supported by Mind, the mental health charity, are encouraging people to #RunAndTalk to improve their mental wellbeing through running and break down the stigma associated with mental health by getting people talking about it.
All you need to do to support this inspirational campaign is run one mile or further and have a chat during the 2nd-8th February period, either with friends, family or colleagues at a time and location of your choice. You can also join one of the organised runs with a RunTogether group listed (live from 18th January). You are also invited (but this is optional) to post a photo of you taking part and join in the conversation on social media using #RunAndTalk.
Look out for the launch of the new RunTogether Runner App in the New Year!
Our latest app is free to download and will complement the already available RunTogether Leader App.
Key features of the app include:
· Search for runs
· View upcoming and completed run details
· View your group details and book on to group details in just two clicks
· Manage and update your profile information
Exclusive access to offers and benefits from RunTogether partners
BE THE BEST YOU, #RUNTOGETHER CAMPAIGN
For many of us New Year is all about change; both in who we are and the lives we lead. As a RunTogether participant, you may have joined us for this very reason.
Starting January 1st, we will be embarking on a new campaign to invite more Runners like yourself to join the RunTogether community. If you could share the campaign, together, we can help individuals spark the change they seek and to help inspire them to come along and join the journey we are on.

GROUP OF THE MONTH:
RunTogether Trail Snails Bingley
We were inundated with nominations from this group, with many of the runners emailing us to show support for their amazing Run Leaders, Sam and Dan.
One of the runners, Joanne said: 'the support they offer is second to none' with 'the leaders going above and beyond to keep the group safe and enjoying the runs.'
Kate who recently completed her first 5k in November, said: 'I don't think i would have got this far if it were not for the Trail Snails'.
Kate's merit for the group was mirrored by fellow runner, Theresa, who explained that the group has gone from 'strength to strength' with many people smashing personal goals.
Safe, supportive and social, embodying the key values of RunTogether. Congratulations Trail Snails you are deserving winners of the final GOTM for 2018!
