Royal Parks Half Marathon 2020

Hyde Park, Sunday 11 October 2020

 

Come and join us Team A4D on Sunday, 11 October 2020 for this outstanding run, widely considered the UK’s best Half Marathon.  Your 13.1 mile route starts and finishes in Hyde Park and takes in Kensington Gardens, St James’s Park and Green Park with great views of the capital’s landmarks including Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament and the Royal Albert Hall.

This year, we will have 30 runners going the extra mile to transform the lives of people with dementia and their carers. The registration fee is just £25 and you will need to set a fundraising target of £500 (with a pledge of £350).

To join the A4D team, email admin@arts4dementia.org.uk and include “Run RPHM 2020” in the subject line.

About Arts 4 Dementia.

A4D partners with arts venues to develop innovative, person-centred arts programmes to inspire people in the early stages of dementia and carers and help them live better for longer at home. A4D’s website uniquely signposts arts events nationwide for people living with dementia; and we provide early-stage dementia awareness training at London arts venues for arts facilitators from all over the country. The 600-plus workshop leaders we have trained to date are delivering arts opportunities to well over 12,000 people affected by dementia each year.  A4D focuses on what people can achieve – often very much more than they imagine.   We aim to give our participants the very best experience that we possibly can in the most inspirational venues. We are currently running a Ballet programme at the Royal Opera House, assisted by dancers from the Royal Ballet.

People affected by dementia looking for artistic stimulation can find opportunities on offer on this website, under Events.
