Let’s dust off those running shoes, prepare for a whistle-stop tour of London’s most beautiful parks and help raise funds to support the fantastic work of the humanitarian charity, SKT Welfare.
On Sunday 9 October 2016, thousands of runners will take on the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon, which starts and finishes in Hyde Park. The 13.1 mile route takes in the capital’s world-famous landmarks on closed roads, including Buckingham Palace, Horse Guards Parade and the Royal Albert Hall. It also passes through four of London’s eight Royal Parks: Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.
SKT Welfare have 13 places waiting to be filled. Although undulating in parts, the course is not hilly and would be great for either experienced or first time half marathon runners, though couch potatoes need not apply. There is a registration fee of £50 and a fundraising target of £500.
SKT Welfare is dedicated to the delivery of humanitarian aid and solutions regardless of race, political affiliation, gender or belief. Its aim is to help relieve the suffering of the world’s poorest communities. Since its inception, the charity has accomplished several projects in the UK, Pakistan, India, Morocco, Somalia and more recently, Palestine.
Since 2011 and the onset of the crisis in Syria, SKT Welfare has re-oriented most of its efforts addressing the humanitarian fallout from this conflict, and has become instrumental in delivering aid to Syrians in need, both inside Syria and within refugee camps in neighbouring countries.
