FAQs

Absolutely not. The crucial thing is that groups around shared interests, like running, create friendly environments where men can find connection and find it easier to open up, but women can and do join and become the most active members of these groups, and also benefit from them too.

You can join as an individual or as a team (as many as you like) at any time during the challenge. You can set yourself up as Team Leader and invite your mates to join you and set up their own page.

No problem! Get yourself signed up and we’ll still support you all the way. The important thing here is that you just give it a go.

Once, twice, ten times, it’s totally up to you, but we suggest at least once a week to really get into the habit.

We want as many people as possible to get moving this April, you might have never run in your life, you might already be a pro. When you sign up you’ll set your own target, and we’ll help you get there. The important thing is to just give it a go.

It’s up to you. You can fundraise through your page, you can make a donation yourself, or you can just run and spread the word. Any money you do raise will be gratefully received and go towards funding our helpline to keeping men alive by talking.

Any money raised will go towards supporting CALM’s work to prevent male suicide, the biggest killer of men under 45. We take over 6000 calls a month and every call costs around £7. So every pound raised, mile ran, and message shared makes a big difference.

Anywhere you want. You can go round the local park or head out round the block on your lunch break.

We’ll ask you for just a small £3 registration fee, just like running with mates, you’re more likely to stick to your goals when you’ve had to cough up some cash.

If you’re under the age of 16 please get your parent/guardian’s permission to take part.

Yes! You can still set up your supporter page and add runs manually within everydayhero.

If you have a medical condition that may be exacerbated by physical activity, please see your doctor before starting #MatesWhoRun.
