Join the A4D Team running the Royal Parks Half Marathon 2017

Royal Parks Half Marathon
Hyde Park, Sunday 8 October 2017

Go the extra mile to transform the lives of people with dementia and their carers - artistic stimulation overrides symptoms and empowers them to rekindle fulfilling, active life in the community.

Arts 4 Dementia offers fifteen places for the sell-out Royal Parks Half Marathon 2017 on 9 October - a special opportunity to run through four of London's Royal Parks, taking in superb views around the capital.

If you like the idea of running and raising funds to change the lives of people facing the shock of a diagnosis of dementia, come and run for A4D on the 10th Anniversary Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon. This enormously popular half marathon has won the Best Outdoor Event at the renowned Event Awards.  This year’s ballot was over-subscribed NINE TIMES!

The 13.1 mile route passes through Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, St James’s Park and Green Park. Runners have great views of the capital's landmarks including Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament and the Royal Albert Hall.
