British 10k London Run
Fun-runners needed for the British 10k London Run!On Sunday July 9th 2017 join us for a fun run, jog (and occasional walk) around central London to help raise money for our brand new inpatient hospice unit.
It’s an iconic route that takes in Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and the Thames. Runners in their tens of thousands, and of all ages and abilities, unite in doing their bit for a wide range of charitable causes. It’s one of those special days in London when everyone’s smiling! After all the running, we get together for a giant celebratory picnic in the beautiful St James Park, where you can share your sandwich with the ducks and pelicans, enjoy a drink and bask in your great achievement.
Six good reasons to join our British 10k London Run team…
- Skanda Vale Hospice have one of the biggest charity teams at the event (last year we had 36 runners – that’s more than the big national charities) so there’s a fantastic team spirit.
- You definitely don’t need to be a super fit young athlete – our eldest team member is 64 years old.
- It’s not a competition – you can take your time, and walk if you get tired.
- You’re not on your own – we have some friendly and experienced runners who can support you throughout the event, and run alongside you if you like.
- 100% of the funds you raise go directly to helping run our new inpatient hospice unit.
- By fun-running with us, you will help families experience the dignity, care and support that they need, during one of the most traumatic times of their lives.
