Last Summer, the #Run5Donate5Nominate5 running challenge went viral, with members of the public running 5K, donating £5 and then nominating a further 5 friends to take on the trend.
The charity Run for Heroes were the creators behind the challenge and now they’re back with a new virtual challenge, 5K May.

5K May is a virtual event and you have complete control over what you choose to do, and how you do it. The event will span the whole month of May. The idea is to complete 5K in whatever way you want – whether it’s run, roll, walk, cycle, swim, skate or even skip – then donate a minimum of £5 to Mind and don't forget to nominate five friends to carry on the awesome fundraising trend!
Created by Run For Heroes in 2020, this event has mobilised over 1.5 million people to get active and give back to society. You can be part of this incredible movement by registering below!
It's so simple. All you need to do is dream up a 5k challenge and take part this May.
There are no rules, apart from the Government guidelines on the roadmap out of lockdown. It's open to everyone. Do it your way, and have fun!

"I've always found that exercise is the one thing that gets me well again, with depression, it's invaluable. It makes me feel great, just healthy and active. I don't feel as tired or lethargic when I exercise and it makes me happy and content in myself."
