Mole Valley Runners looked at ways they could continue to maintain fitness, have fun, support one another and stay safe. One member came up with the fantastic idea of the January MVR Bingo Challenge, which has been incredibly well taken up.
People go out on their own, with a family member, a buddy, or with members of their support bubble and tick off some of the items on the bingo card.
Over the first four days of January, already over 85 runs had taken place with everyone sharing their photos of their runs and their achievements.
At Mole Valley Runners, there is no pressure to be a fast runner, the emphasis is on getting outside, doing something that is good for you, and having some fun along the way!
As all of the normal club's organised runs cannot take place at the moment, the club will continue to provide fun activities to keep people active during the lockdown and to provide a vital place of support, camaraderie and fun through these difficult times.
Throughout the last lockdown, club members undertook runs around their garden, on their garden decking and even round their dining table. There was also a fun daily wheel of doom challenge. During these events, the club managed to raise over £4,100 for the NHS Epsom and St Helier Hospitals charity.
