Massive total recorded in first-ever Simplyhealth Great Run Day initiative
- 1.5 million miles – three times to the moon and back
- 250,000 people got active over the weekend
- We’re on our way to the #millionsmoving
Some impressive statistics have been recorded from the first ever Simplyhealth Great Run Day, which we held over the weekend of 9th and 10th September.
More than 1.5 million miles of activity was clocked up by more than a quarter of a million people - that’s the equivalent distance to the moon and back three times over.
The Simplyhealth Great Run Day was a celebration of movement and was about more than just running. Our aim was to inspire people to get active in any way they wished, with activities such as walking, wheeling, climbing steps, hiking and yoga being logged on millionsmoving.co.uk and the Simplyhealth Great Run Day web hub.
The Simplyhealth Great Run Day is a completely new initiative, and a major step to achieving our ambition to get #millionsmoving. We want to encourage individuals, families and communities to be more active and firmly believe that movement is the cornerstone to good health. It doesn’t matter whether for you that means running a half marathon, or just taking that first step to getting active; every little counts.
There are plans to expand on the initiative on the weekend of the 8th and 9th September 2018 – so make a diary note now to join the #millionsmoving.
