This 13.1 mile run is a delight – taking a route through three of London’s beautiful Royal Parks as the leaves are starting to show their Autumn colours – bliss!
A very popular London run, this combines scenic parkland with iconic urban sights and ensures that you have a crowd of excited spectators with you every step of the way, cheering you on. This is a firm favourite, with a heavily oversubscribed to ballot, and runners coming back year after year. Definitely not one to be missed!
Located in the heart of Westminster, we’re the UK’s busiest homelessness centre, working in direct contact with vulnerable homeless rough sleepers all year round. Being a local organisation, we don’t have the overheads that other’s do, and can promise you that 91p in every £1 will be spent on helping homeless people. Running for us means you will be directly supporting the homeless people who need your help most, through our services which enable people to access housing, employment training, and professional support to overcome personal issues.
What support will we give you?
We’ll be sending you a high-quality running vest, personalised with your name.
We can also help with advice on training and support to achieve your fundraising target.
On the day, we’ll be down there with bags of enthusiasm to help motivate you and cheer you on!
Date: Sunday 13th October
Registration Fee: £30
Sponsorship Target: £350
£350 could enable a vulnerable homeless rough sleeper to have a course of specialist one-to-one mental health support sessions which will help them to positively cope with their problems and move forward. Considering that approximately two thirds of homeless people living on the streets have mental health problems which are often severely hindering their ability to move on from the streets, that is a massive contribution.
