Phill Young, Race Director at Brutal Run said “Brutal Run are excited to partner with Havant and East Hants Mind to help them spread the word of the service they provide to the community and raise funds for them to provide this important service. At Brutal Run we all love putting on the events we do which allow people to get the physical and mental health benefits of being in the outdoors, challenging themselves to do something different and meet other people who enjoy the same things.”


Emma, Fundraising Lead at HEH Mind said “I am so excited to work in partnership with the Brutal Run team across the whole of 2024. Having completed the 5km at Spider Hill myself this weekend (18th November’23) I am confident in saying what a fantastic event the team at Brutal Events run. Havant and East Hants Mind’s partnership is an exciting opportunity to raise vital funds for our services, whilst also promoting the benefits of exercise on our wellbeing.”
