Local Landmarks 2020

3 May 2020 | 9:00am

Join Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest for the 2020 Local Landmarks Half Marathon and help us to continue providing life-changing support to those in need.

When you fundraise for Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest, you help to ensure that nobody has to face a mental health problem alone.

Since mass events have been canceled due to COVID-19, the team at Landmarks have come up with a new challenge to keep you fit and offer a new challenge to take part in!

The Local Landmarks race challenges YOU to take to the streets and run a solo race around your local landmarks. Do you have a lovely local church? A picturesque park or even a postbox? Join Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest and challenge yourself to run a distance over 5k.

Simply sign up to join the race, record your distance with a running app on your phone and upload a picture of you distance along with a picture of yourself and the team will send you a finishers pack complete with medal!

Please remember that this is a solo, virtual challenge. It is important not to do this in groups. The current government advice is that it’s safe to go outside to run once a day alone or with a member of your household as long as you keep a safe distance from other people (at least a two metre distance). You must also follow government advice and minimise the amount of time you are outside – so please ensure that you complete the challenge as part of your daily exercise routine. It is essential that you do not exercise outside more than you would normally. Please read the government’s advice which can be found here and adhere to it at all times. If you would like to read the PM’s latest advice, this can be found here. If the government advice changes, the Local Landmarks Challenge will be paused and re-opened for the remaining duration once it is safe to do so.
