Pyjama Jaunt (4.5m) for Dorset Mind

18:30 Tue 16 May 2023 - Weymouth Rugby Club, Monmouth Avenue, Weymouth DT3 5HZ

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.

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 starting from Weymouth Rugby Club. In you can't make the actual night, we still welcome you to enter and run during the week.

Medals will be presented to all children partaking in the 1.5 mile event, but in order to keep entry prices low and maximise money raised, there will be no medals for the adult event. There will however be a number of prizes for best PJs, etc which will be awarded on the evening.

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

A copy of the runners final instructions can be viewed.

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