“When I was 14, I was picked to run a 400m race at school for “Sports-Day”. I came last. VERY last. Suffice it to say, running is definitely not my thing! And yet, as time went by and I slowly began to forget that burning humiliation feeling, I decided I wanted to try again. So when I saw I could do that AND raise money for this incredible charity.. I put my name down. The race itself was so great! The atmosphere was incredible and I think I ran the entire course with a huge smile on my face. I recommend a 10K run for absolutely everyone. I’m not exaggerating when I tell you I was worried about ending last… But I managed, and so can you!”  



Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon 2019

The stunning and unique 13.1 mile route takes in the capital’s world-famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of London’s eight Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.

“I am a big fan of EMERGENCY UK and I really wanted to give my support to this great charity.  But when they offered I ran the Richmond half marathon, I thought I couldn’t possibly do it: I was not a good runner and I did not know how to raise funds. But now that I’ve done it, I can tell everyone how great it was! During the training I felt much healthier and empowered by the challenge, and raising funds has also been fun and easy! On top of setting a online donation page, I cooked meals for friends and colleagues, collecting donations and moral support. Everyone was extremely generous and we had such a great time together. Thank you EMERGENCY UK, running the Richmond Half Marathon was one of the best experiences ever!”
