The Royal Parks Half Marathon is an exceptional event set in the heart of London, featuring a stunning 13.1-mile route through four of the capital’s historic Royal Parks – Hyde Park, Green Park, St. James’s Park, and Kensington Gardens. This picturesque half marathon boasts a scenic, traffic-free course, providing runners with a unique and memorable experience.
Team Aorta will be participating in the Royal Parks Half Marathon to raise crucial funds for aortic dissection research, with all sponsorship proceeds going directly to our research grant fund. This funding is vital for supporting projects aimed at enhancing clinical care, saving lives, and improving the quality of life for individuals affected by aortic dissection.
The race is scheduled for Sunday, 13th October 2024, commencing at Hyde Park and culminating in a grand finish at Kensington Gardens. There is a registration fee of £25 and a minimum of £350 in sponsorship for a charity place. If you have secured your own entry, you can still join Team Aorta.
As you cross the finish line, not only will you have accomplished your personal running goal, but you will also be contributing to our research objectives: to enhance the lives of those living with aortic dissection.
