The Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon is one of the most scenic city runs in the world. The spectacular 13.1 mile route takes you through four of London’s magnificent Royal Parks (Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, St James’s Park and The Green Park) and past some of the capital’s most iconic landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Downing Street and the Royal Albert Hall.

When Progressio took part in the Royal Parks Half Marathon back in 2013, the team raised over £5000! Charlee was part of the team on that autumnal day and wrote this great blog about her experience.
How could the money you raise support people to transform their own lives?
By taking on this challenge, you will be helping people living in poverty to turn their lives around and build a better future for their families.
- £200 could pay for two farmers to be fully trained in soil conservation and sustainable farming techniques
- £400 could provide a woman with one-to-one training, seeds, materials, hen stock and the ongoing support she needs to start a nutrition garden for her family
- £750 could provide training to local women’s groups in understanding how local authority budgets are set, and how they can influence the law in their own community
- £1000 could provide hens and income for 95 families
