Get fit, win a medal and help Family Rights Group to advise more desperate families
We’re looking for people to join Family Rights Group’s Great North Run and Royal Parks Teams. Tortoises as well as elite athletes very welcome. You’ll get a FRG vest, help setting up an on-line fundraising page and the opportunity to take part in a fabulous run. We’re asking that you aim to raise £300 (or £500 if you take part in both runs).
The Great North Run (13.1 miles) on Sunday 13 September 2020 (from Newcastle to South Shields)
This is the largest half marathon in the world. The atmosphere is amazing, the crowds extraordinary, loud and generous (especially with sweeties!) and if you’re lucky you’ll see the Red Arrows flying overhead. And you end the race at the gorgeous coast line of South Shields.
The Royal Parks Half Marathon (13.1 miles) in central London on Sunday 11 October 2020
You’ll be able to run through central London, past Buckingham Palace, with the wave to the Queen unhindered by cars and motor vehicles. Most of the course is in scenic Hyde Park.
