Marathon man Tony Barclay kindly joined us in the RNIB NI studio this month to tell us about the countless benefits of running.
Tony runs VI Runners and Guide Runners NI and hopes to encourage more blind and partially sighted people to take up running.
Tony said: “Believe you can do it; get off the sofa, get out and run. Enjoy the social benefits, the mental health benefits and the physical benefits and just be part of it!
“You don’t have to run fast, you can walk, you can do a Couch to 5K; we’ve all the facilities in place to support you with this. Just reach out and have a go. You won’t regret it.”
