This January, challenge yourself to get active every day, your way.
Whether you run, swim, cycle or choose your favourite fitness activity, set your goal and enjoy support from the RED community every step, splash and pedal of the way!
Kick-start your 2020 in a positive way and raise funds for Mind so together we can be active for better mental health.
You could pick something you love to do and challenge yourself to do it more often or for longer, or choose something new. The choice is yours! For inspiration, during RED January 2019, the RED community enjoyed one of the following activities; running, walking, gym sessions, yoga, pilates, cycling or swimming. We also had REDers who danced, played team sports or did a different activity every day.
RED January can provide you with a goal and focus to help you through a characteristically tough month, by challenging yourself to get active every day, your way. Typically we can be cash poor in January; RED January is free and all-inclusive. RED January can empower, educate and support you to start the year as you mean to go on, forming healthy habits to continue throughout January and beyond.
At a location that suits you. Whether you’re exercising solo, with friends, family, colleagues, or even your pet dog, you decide where and when is best for you to enjoy your daily activity.
No need to officially log your daily activity, although if it's helpful to know, lots of REDers download the RED January calendar to help track their own activities. Feel free to download here. You can also choose to share your daily activity with the RED online community by clicking the social icons above. If you decide to do this, include #REDJanuary2020.

Registration for RED January is free ensuring the RED experience is as inclusive as possible.
Night Run, organised in partnership with Cotswold Outdoor and The National Trust, is a programme of after-dark trail running events in the National Trust owned sites. Running along moonlit trails through ancient parkland, woodland and gardens is an exciting way of keeping active during the autumn and winter.
Routes for little and long legs Choose the Explorer route (1-3km) or the Adventurer route (6-9km). Both routes are totally traffic-free, mostly on paths and trails and are open to runners and walkers. If you're new to running or looking to go on a family adventure the Explorer route could be just the ticket. The Adventurer route will put you through your paces if you're a seasoned runner, but is also fun if you want to take your time. Don't forget to bring a head torch.
Typically Night Runs are off-road on a mix of multi-terrain paths, bridleways or grassland. The route is marked with reflective arrows, with marshals at critical points to ensure everyone follows the route safely.
Night Runs are taking place at a number different locations, from October 2018 to March 2019.
£7 for children and £14 for adults
Night Running events help to support essential conservation work. Your entry fee will go to the location where you run so you can be sure the money is being spent on conserving national trust sites.
Every participant will need a torch to get round the course. A reasonable quality head torch would be ideal and ensure you have spare batteries too. You will not be allowed to take part without a torch and will have to show this before you get your run number.
