Want to get fit and raise money for our vital services?
We have a few spaces to give out for this year's Royal Parks Half Marathon taking place on Sunday 13 October 2019 and would like people to get in touch if they are interested in running for us.
This stunning central London Half Marathon, takes in some of the capital's world-famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of London's eight Royal Parks - Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James's Park and Kensington Gardens.
Email us if you're interested in taking part and we can help you with training programmes and kit.
Last year we entered a team of 8 runners who performed brilliantly despite high winds and rain for some of the race. They all said that knowing they were raising money for such a good cause helped them through the difficult parts of the race - plus those early morning training sessions!
It was all worth it in the end. They raised nearly £9,000 and every penny raised is helping us carry out the essential services and activities we provide to older adults in the borough.
