Up and Running Guelph
Up and Running Guelph was launched in 2016 by a team of passionate community members to improve mental health and well-being through inclusive, nature-based walking and running programs within a supportive community. Originally designed for women, who have higher rates of depression and anxiety, our programs harness the benefits of exercise, nature, and social connections. Over the last 5 years, over 600 participants have experienced a sense of belonging and improved mental well-being following participation in our programs. Many have built lifelong friendships and over 75% continue to participate beyond their initial 10 week session. Up and Running programs offer a low-cost, accessible, community-based tool for early intervention and prevention of mental health challenges.
