Rokman challenged people across the UK to run 5K in their gardens to raise money and show their support to the NHS during the coronavirus outbreak.


The UK was challenged to run or walk a 5K around their garden at any point on Sunday 5th April to show their support to the NHS. If individual’s didn’t have a garden then they could use a room or hallway in their house. In fact, the smaller the space, the better explained Terry Rosoman, Rokman Founder.

“We wanted to set an achievable, yet challenging target for people to aim for. Running in such a confined space is a lot harder than it seems. It’s actually more of a mental challenge than it is a physical one.”

“At Rokman, our mission is to inspire deep mental resilience within people so that they are able to overcome the most intimidating challenges in physical endurance, fitness and life. At this present time, due to the coronavirus outbreak, mental toughness is more important than ever. Setting people meaningful challenges, like the 5K Garden Grind, gets people active, focusing on a challenge and gives them a feeling of togetherness and support. All these factors are important to remaining mentally strong during stressful situations.

“The NHS have also been put under an enormous amount of strain caring for patients affected by the coronavirus outbreak at the moment, so we wanted to show our appreciation in our own way.

“We were absolutely blown away by the response and I want to thank every person who took part or who donated. We wouldn't have raised as much as we did if it wasn’t for the brilliant team effort from everyone involved.
