"We started using a Rethink Mental Illness community service building in Exmouth as a base for our running group a few years ago. The service in Exmouth agreed we could use the lobby to meet before setting off on our bi weekly club run. Initially this was a convenient venue but as time went on we found out more about the centre and its valuable role. It was when it emerged that some of our runners had friends or family who had used the service, worked at the service or in professional capacity had referred people to the service that we were faced with the very real '1 in 4 people being affected by mental illness' statistic. We also realised this was a fantastic community resource. The team at Exmouth are outward thinking and maintain links with other community groups very well. For example one of our runners is also a member of the Exmouth Ceramic group who work with Rethink Mental Illness clients in their pottery studio. We decided to organise this marathon and half marathon to thank Rethink Mental Illness for the use of their Exmouth premises and the services they provide to people with a mental illness."
