Thank You!

Thanks to your incredible support, 27 27 has raised over £1,000,000 this year.

We're so humbled by the generosity, passion and kindness of everyone who has taken on this challenge.

See you spring 2022!

More students are experiencing mental health problems than ever before. The number of students reporting a mental health problem is five times greater today than it was ten years ago, while the number of students dropping out because of mental health problems has trebled.

Every person who took part in 27 27 is sending a clear message: it’s time to take our mental health seriously, and we won’t give up until everyone with a mental health problem gets support and respect.

How do I track my miles?

We recommend using apps like Strava as a great tool for tracking your runs which you can also link to your fundraising page too! Find out more about linking Strava here. If you don’t have a fancy app to track your miles, you’re still very welcome to join in the challenge! A rough, tech free way to track your run is to remember that running a mile could take on average between 10-12 minutes. Of course, that will depend on your terrain and running experience, so don’t worry if it takes you longer.

Do you have any running tips?

We sure do. Hayley, our Head of Physical Activity at Mind, helped us to compile our Guide to Completing 27 Miles in 27 Days. You can find that here.
