Running is easily accessible to most people, with minimal equipment needed, great for improving mental health, as well as physical. Beginners can start at their own pace, and even walk/run/walk.

As a formerly very weak runner I have made so much progress during lockdown and gained loads of benefit from it. Lots of ways to expand and grow moving forwards and I believe lots of people have far more potential than they realise. All it takes is encouragement.
