Royal Parks Half Marathon 2019

Hyde Park, Sunday 13 October 2019

Come and join us our extraordinary A4D team on Sunday, 13 October for an energetic morning in Hyde Park! Whether you’re running or supporting, come and soak up the festival atmosphere in Hyde Park with plenty of entertainment and refreshments.

This year we have 20 wonderful runners going the extra mile to transform the lives of people with dementia and their carers – including 4 from Ridgeway Investment Management. We still have a few places left – get in touch if you’d like to run!

The runners 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.

With with more than half of the course actually within Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, there are plenty of opportunities to see the runners pass by and cheer them on. You can follow their progress on the Royal Parks Half app, available from App Store or Google Play.

We’ll be meeting at the A4D table from 7.45 AM and again after the race

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.
