13 runners celebrated Mental Health Awareness Week by carrying out random acts of kindness during their solo runs last week! Fantastic work everyone who took part!

It was a stunning week with glorious sunshine, perfect conditions for running and, considering what times we are in, an even more perfect time to carry out some random acts of kindness!

Lizzie went out on long run and posted some lovely notes for other runners to find. Imagine how amazing it would be to find a message telling you to:

Listen to the birds singing just for you!

Lisa sent some take-away cocktails to a friend she is missing! What a great idea! I got so inspired by this that I have decided to make a lucky dip with everyone who took part in this week's challenge and deliver some GoodGin to the winner as my random act of kindness! Lets see who it will be!

Nic offered support to a teenager in need whilst Jo sent her god-daughter pictures of a fairy garden she found during her run, promising to take her there when things are back to normal!

Anna put out water for thirsty dogs outside her house and Clàudia helped out a friend by taking their dog for a walk together with Pete. Lovely work!

I absolutely loved seeing all the random acts of kindness that you guys carried out! At times like this kindness is more important that ever and you guys really spread some lovely vibes and kindness in the community!
