Starting on the 1st March , you'll have 27 days to complete your challenge to run 27 miles. You can do this in your own time and at your own pace, in whatever way feels most comfortable for you.
Join the student running revolution raising money for better mental health.
Never forget that you're doing something incredible, raising money and awareness for mental health.
Whether you are a seasoned runner or a first-timer, Mind will be with you every step of the way. We offer all our runners a fantastic support package:
More students are experiencing mental health problems than ever before. The number of students reporting a mental health problem is five times greater today than it was ten years ago, while the number of students dropping out because of mental health problems has trebled.
Every student taking part in the 27 27 challenge is sending a clear message: it's time to take our mental health seriously, and we won't give up until everyone with a mental health problem gets the support and respect.
Mind provides a national voice and local support for anybody experiencing a mental health problem. We campaign against discrimination, fight for better services, and offer information and support. By taking part in 27 27 you're raising awareness of student mental health and helping us be there for the 27% of us who report a mental health problem while at university.
If you're looking for support for your own mental health have a look at our student mental health info pages.
This year we would like to say a huge thank you to our incredibly talented student film makers who created the content for our 27 27 adverts.
