Manchester arts collective Standard Practice is looking for artists, creatives, musicians, filmmakers, storytellers and more to be part of a unique running club to help raise money for local mental health charities. On Monday 7 December, the application process will open for 2021’s Lost Running Race, with 300 people from across the globe being specifically selected to take-part in a socially distanced celebration of creativity.

While the specifics of race day are still largely under-wraps, we do know that it’s due to take place on Monday 3 May, with a variety of distance options available to suit any experience level. It doesn’t matter if you choose to complete a three-mile trek, a 13 mile jog or simply a ‘race of the mind’ – The Lost Running Race aims to shift the focus onto bringing people together during a time where isolation has taken centre stage.

Successful applicants will be sent a unique race pack containing goodies like a foiled race number, a cherry wood flag, a ceramic finishers medal and a bespoke race top, alongside energy bars and club memorabilia. Attendees will then be invited to join a range of creative workshops and talks due to take place between January 2021 and race day covering topics like cartography, yoga, drawing exercises and route planning sessions – each with connectivity at their core. To find out more – and to be the first to sign up – visit The Lost Running Club website.
