Virtual Pyjama Jaunt (4.5m) for Dorset MIND

18:30 Sun 16 May 2021 - Weymouth Rugby Club, Monmouth Avenue, Weymouth DT3 5HZ

With Mental Health Awareness Week coming up, and still some uncertainties as to what can and can’t take place, we have decided that the Egdon Pyjama Jaunt will remain a virtual event in 2021.

Obviously, if restrictions allow, clubs could choose to run in their pyjamas on their club night during that week.

Over the course of the last 12 months, there has been a huge demand on mental health services and charities, and even the most resilient of people have found themselves struggling at some point. It is therefore, even more important than ever that we try to raise funds for our local mental health charity, Dorset Mind.

From personal experience, I found that when my mood was at it's lowest, all I wanted to do was stay in bed in my Pyjamas, even though I knew that getting up, dressed and doing any form of exercise, would benefit my mental health. Hence the fancy dress theme of pyjamas.

Please try and support this event if you can and we can hopefully get back to running it as a live event in 2022.

The Course
A 4.5ish mile fun run and 1.5 mile kids fun run (adults welcome too) taking place during Mental Health Awareness week with all proceeds going towards the local mental health charity, Dorset Mind.

The course will be a 4.5 or 1.5 mile route of your choice, following whatever social distancing guidelines are in place.

You should aim to run your route any time during Mental Health Awareness Week (May 10th-16th).

It would be great if you could record your time for our 'fun' results board (details will be included in your event remindered email), please do take photos and post them on the facebook events page.

As this is a charity event, there are no refunds, deferrals or transfers.

On behalf of Egdon Heath Harriers and Dorset Mind, I thank you in advance for your support in raising valuable funds for the charity.
