#ShareRunHappy

It is time that we all had a bit of positivity and happiness in our lives, and I want to show how quickly happiness can spread. To do this I want to use the transformative power of the run. Many people have found the love of running, and found that a simple run can put a smile on your face, so let’s share this #runhappy.

Let’s share our happiness through running.

Everyone has learnt about the R0 rate with Covid 19, and that if the R0 is at 1+ it will spread rapidly… Well I want to Share #runhappy at the rate of R0 1, and show everyone how it works. I am looking for a daily increase of 1 per person, and you will be shocked at what this means.

Dancing towards the finish line

Throughout the month of August I want everyone to run any distance, any time and have fun, talk about what makes them happy, and tag in at least one person a day. If we did this then we would reach over a million people in just 21 days… that’s right, in August we can share happiness with over a million people by just sharing with one person each a day. We can show that a run can share a day, a life… the world!

This is about sharing happiness, but the generous team at Brooks have agreed to get involved and offer some fantastic prizes. There will be 5, yes 5 prizes, just for taking part. What a great incentive, just to share some happiness.

My #runhappyteam

On top of this I want to share this link to a Just Giving page to raise money for Samaritans. An organisation who are there to listen to people when they need it most, when they have lost all their happiness and need someone to turn to. This page is in no way linked to the competition, and the competition is merely a bonus for sharing happiness. In fact prizes are only available for those who live in the UK (as it is the UK team that are providing the prize), but that doesn’t stop us sharing #runhappy worldwide, and who knows, if it spreads far enough perhaps some other prizes can be made available.

Prize 1… the R0 1 Test

Share Run Happy

On 1st August 2020 (my daughters birthday ((another reason to be happy))), I posted the picture above on my Instagram account (@pauladdicott), with brief details of the test. I want you to simply tag friends. Tag people in separate posts, as many people as you want, throughout the whole of August. Each tag is a separate entry, and on 1st September 2020 I will use a random generator to pick one person who left a tag and they will win a pair of trainers from Brooks.

Prize 2… What makes you #runhappy

People make me run happy

As this is all about sharing happiness then the next prize which runs from 3rd to 9th August 2020, is to post a picture of happiness. This can be whatever you like, just a picture running, with friends, anything you want, and write what makes you #runhappy. Within this post you must use #sharerunhappy as I will use this hashing to select a winner.

Feel free to tag @pauladdicott and @brooksrunninguk to make sure we don’t miss your post. The winner will receive a pair of trainers from Brooks.

Prize 3 – Floating

I’m flying

What puts a spring in your step? For week 2 the challenge is to tell me what puts a spring in your step, with a post of a jumping or flying feet picture. Entry will be between 10th – 16th August. Within this post you must use #sharerunhappy as I will use this hashing to select a winner.

Feel free to tag @pauladdicott and @brooksrunninguk to make sure we don’t miss your post. The winner will receive a pair of trainers from Brooks.

Prize 4 – Run to the Beat

Keep the party going

For week 3, tell me what beat you run to. Do you run to music, to a podcast, or just the rhythm of your feet, what is your tune? Competition is run between 17th – 23rd August. Within this post you must use #sharerunhappy as I will use this hashing to select a winner.

Feel free to tag @pauladdicott and @brooksrunninguk to make sure we don’t miss your post. The winner will receive a pair of trainers from Brooks.

Prize 5 – What gives you a boost

Finish line feels

For the final week I want to know what gives you that boost. The boost to start, to get up and go, to keep going, to push to the finish line. The competition will run between 24th – 30th August. Within this post you must use #sharerunhappy as I will use this hashing to select a winner.

Feel free to tag @pauladdicott and @brooksrunninguk to make sure we don’t miss your post. The winner will receive a pair of trainers from Brooks.

I hope you enjoy the month, you find happiness and share happiness. Please get involved and if you have ideas to make this month even better, then please get in contact with me.
