    Story

    Hi my name is Jamie Stewart and I’m on a life mission to inspire people to get active and healthy through the power of running, so that they can, in turn, inspire people around them to do the same.... One day.... One run at a time!

    I believe running can change people’s lives, not just physically but mentally. So many people today suffer from stress, depression and anxiety - going for a simple run can do so much to battle this. If you’re ever feeling worried, mad, angry, upset, bored, irritated or aggravated.... Go for a Run! Clear your head and feel great for doing it…. But, there are so many more benefits to running - this simple activity lowers your risk of heart disease, helps you sleep better, boosts your daily energy, improves your immune system... the list goes on and on…………. So why wouldn’t you run?

    At the beginning of February this year I set out to run at least 5 kms a day for 365 days. This started out as a personal challenge but has since grown into something way more important. Around day 50 I thought... Would it not be great idea to invite people to come run with me? What happened next, I could have never imagined! A few people came forward at first and I would have someone to run with every other day. Then before I knew it, I had someone out with me every day, to the point where I am now running twice a day and have the beginnings of a waiting list. It’s the power of those people who come running with me that inspires the next person to get inspired. People see their friends and family out running and think - wait a minute - I did not know he or she runs? Or even could run in the first place! It is so powerful.

    ‘Run with Style’ was born because I believe everyone can run with style! Because we all have our own unique way we run. Some of us might be fast, slow or somewhere in between. You do not need to become the next Mo Farah; you just need to become the best version of YOU! Run for fun, run for health but most importantly – RUN for YOU… as you are the most important person, not the person you want to be like.

    Just concentrate on being the best YOU!

    I’m looking to raise funds to continue to reach more people in my local community and further afield. Everyone who runs with me runs for free. I believe in keeping this part of ‘Run with Style’ 100% free for ever. This means, regardless of your circumstances, you can still run. This is so important to me because if there is someone out there having a bad time in their life, such a simple thing like a run can change their way of thinking and get them back on track. So for me this is far more important than charging someone to run.

    I will be using raised funds for public liability insurance and for specific marketing to be able to reach out to more people. I’m also developing an initiative to take to schools to get children running and active from a young age. This will be planned, developed and tested locally first and then rolled out nationally to schools.

    I am a father of two wonderful boys age 11 and 7. I have the same struggle that ever parent does at the moment to try get our children to be active and get away from the iPads, PlayStations and other devices. It is not their fault they were born in a time where technology is part of everything in daily life, but this can keep them indoors.

    So if you can only give once this month and have given... then please think of me next time.

    Thank you.

    Jamie
