Starfish have guaranteed places in Royal Parks Half Marathon London 2017 on Sunday 8th October, and we are looking for runners to join the Starfish team and help us change lives. With your support Starfish can provide life saving healthcare, education and child protection to children orphaned or made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS in South Africa.
Royal Parks Half Marathon is one of the world’s biggest half marathons and with 16,000 runners taking part in the 13.1 mile run, it will be an exciting event for everyone involved. This year it is set to be better than ever as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of this race.
Starting in Hyde Park, the 13.1-mile route will take you on through four of London’s stunning Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James Park and Kensington Gardens – and past many of London’s iconic landmarks.
As a part of a Starfish team, you will receive:
¶ A fundraising pack with exciting ideas to help you smash your targets
¶ Ongoing support and pre-event information
¶ A free Starfish branded running vest!
¶ Jaffa Cakes and bananas to boost energy levels
¶ And of course, cheering support from the loudest voices on the course to keep you motivated
The fundraising target for each runner is £350 and your sponsorship will help Starfish provide lifesaving healthcare and education to vulnerable children in South Africa.
Registration ends 1st August, so sign up before it is too late!
