A big thank you to our 24
runners who all finished the Royal Parks Half Marathon (with no
injuries or serious regrets that we know of) !
Many thanks for your efforts, both on the run and with
raising sponsorship for Street Child. It is much appreciated!
Bertie Dannatt finished first for us with a rather impressive time
of only 1hr 34mins! And we also had many more come over the finish
line in that second hour, including Jamie Bowden, Tom Quayle and
Laurence, who within minutes didn't look like they'd even run
a mile! And our ladies were most impressive!! Thank you to
It was a lovely day for the run and we had a prime spot for our
Street Child stand - just near the 800 metres-to-go mark, where we
cheered on the runners for hours.
The Street Child team were among 12,500 runners who came from
across the UK and 30 countries around the world to race through the
streets of London with 40,000 spectators and supporters cheering on
Starting and finishing in Hyde Park, runners ran the scenic 13.1
mile route through four of London's beautiful Royal Parks (Hyde
Park, Kensington Gardens, The Green Park and St James's Park) and
past some of the capital's most iconic landmarks including
Buckingham Palace, The Houses of Parliament, The London Eye and The
Royal Albert Hall.
We spoke with quite a few runners so are hoping it generated some
interest for the Sierra Leone Marathon!
