Chase the Sun Info
Last year we launched our virtual run called Chase the Sun, where we encouraged people to walk or run 10k in the week that included the longest day of the year.
A virtual run still means you still actually run/walk/ride but the great thing is you can do it when suits you. You might be an early morning runner or an evening runner but you can still take part in this event!
This year is going to be BIGGER and even more inclusive.
We want YOU to sign up to ‘chase the sun ‘and pledge to push yourself physically to achieve your own goal.
Maybe you have always wanted to try and run 5km, maybe a marathon , maybe try a new fitness class or cycle to work for the week. We don’t mind; what we want is to spread the message that getting out and exercising improves your mental health. And of course raise money for Sunflowers !
