Royal Parks Half Marathon
Hyde Park, Sunday 14 October 2018
We are delighted to launch our RPHM 2018 campaign. This year we have taken 20 places in this wonderful race, acknowledged by many as the UK’s best Half Marathon, both due to the course through the Royal Parks and past many of London’s classic landmarks, and due to the festival and spectator experience, The race was once again eight times oversubscribed in the public ballot and of our 20 places, we launch with eight runners already booked and a number of others expressing interest. It will be a wonderful day, but more important, by your running, you will be helping to transform the lives of people with dementia and their carers, through the provision of challenging arts workshop programmes for people living with early stage dementia.
About Arts 4 Dementia. A4D develops innovative, person-centred arts programmes to re-energise and inspire people in the early stages of dementia and carers, to help them live better for longer at home. Our 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 500-plus workshop leaders we have trained to date are delivering arts opportunities to well over 10,000 people living with dementia each year. A4D focuses on what people can achieve – often very much more than they imagine.
The Arts 4 Dementia team will be taking on a 13.1 mile route, passing through Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, St James’s Park and Green Park. Runners and supporters have great views of the capital’s landmarks including Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament and the Royal Albert Hall.
