make brains matter
This September, we invite you to embrace Connor's Run Your Way Any Day with your own I WILL affirmation - just like Connor did during his yoga therapy class. His was 'I WILL be Awesome' - yours can be anything.
Take on a challenge of any kind: run, walk, roll, hop, skip, jump or dance. Do it once, or do it every day... just do it your way! All that we ask is that you make it awesome.
CREATURE OF HABIT
You might like to stick to the traditional distances of 18.8km or 9.6km from the bay to the boatsheds, or discover a completely new path in your local area. Be sure to check out our our Connor's Run training club on Strava and join the fun!
Make an impact without leaving the house! Dust off your home gym equipment and complete a home workout challenge, or shave off your lockdown locks for a great cause.
FEEL GOOD WHILE DOING GOOD!
Celebrate your brain with a mindfulness challenge! Practice daily meditation, yoga, or take on a new creative hobby like knitting or painting.
FIND YOUR MAGIC NUMBER
Set yourself a month-long challenge! Step 1: Choose your activity (run, walk, read, push-up). Step 2: Set your time/distance/reps. For example: Walk 10,000 steps per day, cycle 9.6km each week, read 1 book per week, climb 18 flights per day. The choice is yours!
