Running for fun and mental health

Published 9 November 2021
Running can be a powerful tool in managing your mental health and improving your wellness. With mental health issues at the forefront of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2XU Wellness Run is a great way to keep active and participate in a great cause.

The 2XU Wellness Run is on 5 December at St Kilda’s Catani Gardens with every dollar raised supporting Beyond Blue’s 24/7 Support Services.

Participants can choose between three different circuit runs: a 5km run or walk, a 10km run or a 21.1km half marathon.

“It’s all about getting people involved and getting people back out there now after lockdown and raising money for those support services for Beyond Blue,” Event Manager Kane Osler said.

The event has already raised over $100,000 and is well on the way to achieving the goal of fundraising $200,000.
