Choose your route any day in 2019 between 1 April and 10 October (World Mental Health Day) and walk, run or cycle your way around 100 streets in your community to raise mental health awareness for national charity Support in Mind Scotland.

You can do the 100 Streets Challenge solo, with a friend, or as part of a group. Registration is now open!

The challenge is absolutely FREE but we would welcome any donations or sponsorship to support our vital mental health services across Scotland.

And new for 2019, anyone who raises £100 or more will receive one of our special 100 Streets goody bags, featuring a technical running shirt, sweat bands and water bottle! 

Join us in 2019

Scotland and British Lions rugby great Scott Hastings and his wife Jenny - both Charity Ambassadors for Support in Mind Scotland - led the campaign in 2017 and 2018.

Joggers, walkers and cyclists of all ages from Kinross to California have taken part, and Scott and Jenny will be backing the campaign again in 2019.

And joining the campaign this year is our newest ambassador, gold medalist sprinter, Maria Lyle!

The aim of the campaign is to raise mental health awareness, raise funds for Support in Mind Scotland’s mental health services and to promote good physical and mental health.

"This is such a simple thing to do and can make such a difference. It’s a great campaign. 
Get involved in it and help people improve their mental health."

      - Scott Hastings, Ambassador, Support in Mind Scotland.

What does the challenge involve?

  • This is a great way to improve not only your mental wellbeing but your physical health.
  • Exercising by running, walking or cycling can help to release those all-important endorphins, relieve stress and clear your head.
  • It’s an opportunity to get out, explore and see what lies beyond your doorstep.
  • Take on the 100 Streets Challenge on your own, with a friend, or as part of a group.
  • Be creative and use your imagination when creating your own route.
  • Typically, we find the distance works out between 6 and 9 miles.
  • It’s not a race.  It’s all about having fun and helping yourself to feel well.
  • Maybe stop for a cuppa, a chat and a well-deserved cake along the way.
  • Taking part is absolutely free, but any money you raise through donations and sponsorship will help deliver vital mental health services in Scotland.
  • Don’t be shy! Tell us how you got on: share your efforts, pictures and stories on social media.
  • So get on your trainers or cycling helmet and start your fitness one street at a time.

The Benefits of Helping?

Open: Sign-up and taking part is free, but we still hope to raise at least £10,000 this year to support the crucial mental health services we deliver across Scotland. Participants can either donate or set up their own JustGiving page by visiting our online campaign page

Inclusive: The challenge is open to individuals or groups of all ages and fitness levels

Creative: Participants will be encouraged to use their imagination, and where possible to map out routes for themselves

Fun: The challenge is NOT a race against the clock. One of our groups last year, ran 50 streets, stopped for bacon rolls and tea, and then completed their challenge after they had been suitably fed and watered!

Flexible: If walkers wish to do the challenge over a number of days they can. We can provide free Log Books on request.

Memorable: Everyone who completes the challenge will be presented with a souvenir certificate. For a minimum donation of £10 you will also receive a 100 Streets Challenge T-shirt and one of our new medals. With your permission we would also love to capture your efforts across online and social media platforms.

“We want to involve as many people of all ages and fitness levels in this year’s 100 Streets Challenge. It’s a great way to improve your physical and mental wellbeing and to see what lies beyond your doorstep.”

          — Colin Leslie, Fundraising Manager, Support in Mind Scotland.
