What supporters say

The Royal Parks Half Marathon was a great event - well organised, a beautiful course and fantastic support from spectators. I was proud to run it for Breast Cancer Now in memory of a friend of mine.

Simon, Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon Team Now member

The support on the day is amazing and inspiring and it's a fantastic event, taking in many of the most famous sights in London. The Breast Cancer Now team did a fantastic job getting me prepared and my small group of supporters found the best places to cheer me on. Thanks for a great day and I hope that the sponsorship money raised helps all those now and in the future to beat this disease.
