YORKSHIRE MARATHON

This popular and picturesque run takes participants past some of York’s most historic sights and along scenic country lanes, making it an attractive prospect for runners of all abilities.

One of the easiest ways to start off your fundraising for CHSF is by opening a JustGiving page.

JustGiving is a safe and simple way for you to shout about what you are doing for charity and why it is important to you – plus it makes it really easy for charities to collect your hard-earned cash.

Quarantine Marathon

Run (or walk!) the 26.2 mile distance of a marathon. If it feels a little far to go it alone, why not do it as part of a team? Either on a home treadmill, in the garden or when you can get further afield. A great excuse to get outdoors or use your lunch break at home more wisely!

TOP TIPS

— Keep track of your steps using a Fitbit, Garmin or just on your phone! —

— Remember to share your sweaty selfies, telling everyone of your progress! —

— Know your limits and don’t overdo it. Keep yourself hydrated and don’t forget to reward yourself for your efforts! —

SAFETY FIRST

— Stay local and use open spaces near to your home where possible —

— Keep at least one metre apart from anyone outside your household at all times, ideally two! —

— If you have a garden, make use of the space for exercise and fresh air —

— Take hygiene precautions and wash hands regularly —
