A Refuge runner takes part in the Royal Parks half marathon

Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon

Join #TeamRefuge to run in London’s most beautiful green spaces including Hyde Park, Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.

  I am absolutely honoured to have run my first ever half marathon for Refuge, especially in a year that has been unimaginably tough for so many women and children. The work Refuge does is close to my heart, so I am delighted to have fundraised for them and taken part.
