In 2021 HI Runners became a #RunAndTalk club. #RunAndTalk is a combined initiative with UK athletics and the mental health charity Mind.

The programme has been created with the aim of improving mental health through running.

The aim of the programme is to:

  • Get people talking about mental health, sharing their experiences and removing stigma.
  • Provide support and guidance to raise awareness of mental health problems.
  • Support people experiencing mental health problems to be physically active through running, whether that is to support them in starting, returning to or continuing to run.
