Every year Children & the Arts enters a team of runners to The Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon to raise funds to support our work across the UK. Why not join us this year and help us continue to inspire deprived children across the UK.
The stunning 13.1 mile route, described as ‘the best bits of The London Marathon’ goes through the beautiful Royal Parks of London – St. James’s Park, Green Park and Kensington Gardens – whilst taking in some of the capital’s most iconic landmarks including Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament.
Places for the 2013 Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon are now closed but if you are interesting in running for us in 2014 please give us a call on 020 3326 2234. To find out more about the race, please visit The Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon website.
Dom Wright ran The Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon last year on behalf of Children & the Arts and thoroughly recommends the experience.
“It was a great day, with a fantastic atmosphere along the whole route. Seeing all the crowds and support from all kinds of charities really gives you a humbling sense of achievement. Children & the Arts particularly encouraged and supported me from the day I started training, keeping me updated with everyone’s progress, and made it feel not only an individual effort but a great team effort too”.
This year’s half marathon takes place on Sunday 6th October 2013.
