Who's up for the #TheJune500 Bournemouth to Paris Challenge 2021?

Coming out of lockdown this year, we hope the challenge will be a great motivator as you return back to work and your 'normal' life. You might have less spare time - but more of a need to focus on your wellbeing!

Join us individually or spread the distance by entering in a pair, group or team to cover 500km (Bournemouth to Paris approx), by walking, running, swimming or cycling!

The June 500 Challenge is designed to get you moving, keep fit physically AND mentally; and also to help raise funds to help us meet the rising demands for mental health support in Dorset. Never have our services been more needed!



1: Target: 500km distance in the month of June, 1st - 30th inclusive.

2. Any type of activity is encouraged. Walking, running, cycling, swimming, rowing etc as long as it doesn't involve an engine. Simply use a fitness app to keep track of your distance.

3. You can do it as an individual, as a couple, a team or group of friends. Anyone is welcome to take part. Simply add all your exercise distances together.

4. Get involved on Socials by simply posting screen shots of your activity from your fitness app and feel free tag us : @challengesdorsetmind and @dorsetmind (Instagram/Twitter), @dorsetmindofficial (Facebook) - and use our hashtag #TheJune500
