Mind’s Virtual Seven x Seven, with It’s Grim Up North

To celebrate the positive impact of running on mental health, the wonderful people at It’s Grim Up North are hosting a virtual Seven x Seven, with all proceeds going to national charity Mind.


Mind is a mental health charity established with the aim of ensuring that nobody has to tackle a mental health problem alone.

What is Seven x Seven?

Through the Seven x Seven event, you select a distance to complete each day within a seven day period. The available distances for entry are:

  • 1 Mile
  • 5K
  • 8K
  • 5 Mile
  • 10 Mile
  • Half Marathon
  • Marathon

Once completed, email the It’s Grim Up North Team and you will receive a bespoke medal in the post.

My aim with the 80in8 challenge is to raise awareness and funds for dementia research, and also to promote the positive impact of running on mental health, so I was delighted to learn of such a wonderful initiative.

How Do I Enter?

The challenge is only open until the end of August, so there’s not long left to enter and get behind a wonderful charity! Entries are just £10 and all proceeds go to Mind.
