A Refuge runner takes part in the Royal Parks half marathon

Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon

This popular event takes in the spectacular sites of London’s most beautiful Royal Parks and stunning sites. Starting and ending in Hyde Park with up to 16,000 other runners, this 13.1 mile run is like no others, breathe in the fresh air whilst experiencing these historical parklands and all they have to offer.

  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.
