Run for Mind and win an iPod Shuffle

Despite not having blogged any runs for ages, I have been running. Just very very slowly. I hope I get a bit quicker, as Folkestone Half is in six weeks and I’ve arranged to meet Travelling Hopefully, Helsbels, Fit Artist, Tom Roper and Highway Kind afterwards for lunch, but at this rate I’m not even sure I’d make it in time for dinner.

mind_logoTwo weeks after Folkestone, is the Royal Parks Half, where I’ll be meeting up with fairweatherrunner, Helsbels and abradypus for drinks after (I don’t do races just for the socialising afterwards, honest). Speaking of the Royal Parks Half, if you didn’t get in the ballot and still fancy doing it, if you register to run for it through Mind, you can enter their competition to win an iPod Shuffle and tickets for the VIP tent (where you will get fed after the race).

The competition

Mind would like you help them to create the ultimate feel-good running playlist on Spotify. From pumping energiser to guilty pleasure, we’ve all got a favourite exercise soundtrack, and they want you to tell them what your top running tunes are.

To enter the competition and be in with a chance of winning 1 of 5 iPod Shuffles and a pair of VIP tickets, all you need to do is leave a comment on this blog post including:

– Name of artist

– Song title

– Why this song makes you feel-good

– Entrant’s name

Even if you don’t want to run for Team Mind, they would still love to know what your favourite exercise tracks are, so please leave a comment anyway.


To register to run for Team Mind, visit their Royal Parks web page.

You can read the full terms and conditions of the competition here.

The competition closes on 26 August 2011 and the winners will be announced on 31 August 2011.
