Up and Running Guelph

Up and Running Guelph’s mission is to improve mental health and well-being through inclusive, nature-based walking and running programs within a supportive community. Our programs are delivered on the trails in Royal City Park and York Road Park in Guelph, Ontario.

Since 2016, we have delivered inclusive, supportive programs that harness the benefits of exercise, nature and social connections to help women struggling with depression and/or anxiety. We are in growth phase and plan to broaden our impact by increasing participation in current programs, and adding new ones such as a program for men. We have had a lot of interest in our programs, and over the next 2 years will be developing plans for formalizing and sharing our program model with other organizations/communities.
