You can, to a restricted extent, take part in Support in Mind Scotland’s 100 Streets Challenge ® in 2020, subject to Scottish Government and NHS guidelines over the ongoing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation.

Your public health and safety will always be our first priority, so please adhere strictly to the new advice that has been announced.

We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation on a daily basis and will follow any relevant advice and act accordingly. Following the Government announcement on 23 March, this means you can only go out for a walk, cycle or run once a day and must go alone or only with people from your own household - staying a distance of at least 2 metres apart from others. Others who have been told to self isolate or stay indoors should do so.

Our annual Mental Health fundraising and awareness-raising campaign, kindly sponsored this year by sports retailer Decathlon, will conclude on World Mental Health Day on 10 October.

In these times of adversity, the 100 Streets Challenge ® offers people an opportunity to beat boredom, break up their day and stay physically active by getting outside (where possible) and walking, running or cycling around 100 streets of their choice. You DO NOT have to complete 100 streets in one day, and can complete the challenge over a number of days, weeks or months.

We've made this guide to help you have a fun, safe, 100 Streets Challenge:

Registration for the challenge is absolutely FREE and is open now. Simply fill out the registration form by clicking the button below and we will guide you through the process.

SIGN UP

A special certificate, signed by our fantastic Support in Mind Scotland charity ambassadors Scott and Jenny Hastings will also be presented to anyone who completes the challenge.

A bespoke medal, re-designed for 2020, will be presented to anyone who is able to donate or raise at least £10 in support of our mental health services. You can donate to our appeal or set up your own fundraising page by clicking the button below and following the instructions.

DONATE/FUNDRAISE

The concept of the 100 Streets Challenge ® is simple. Choose whether you want to walk, run or cycle then choose your own route.  

Please let us know if you would like us to send you a Log Book to record your streets or alternatively you can download one to print out yourself by clicking the link here.
