The Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon is taking place on Sunday 9th October 2011. Starting and finishing in Hyde Park, the 13.1-mile route races through four of London’s stunning Royal Parks (Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, The Green Park and St James’s Park).
Members of the Frontier Team will be running for UNICEF in the half marathon. UNICEF is a charity that works to protect child rights worldwide. For over 60 years it has been the world’s leading organisation for children, working to help them survive and thrive from early childhood through adolescence. UNICEF works with families, communities, and governments in more than 190 countries worldwide to help every child reach their full potential through long-term and emergency work on health care, education and protection for children at risk.
Frontier Technology supports a number of charities that are important to its employees, and UNICEF is one of these. We encourage our team to make every step count, as this half marathon provides a great opportunity for Team Frontier to get together and race for some great charitable cause. We are sponsoring our team to run the Royal Parks Half Marathon and are willing them on every step of the way.
About The Royal Parks Half Marathon
The Royal Parks Foundation is a registered charity established in 2003. It is the charity that helps support London’s eight London’s Royal Parks for everyone to enjoy, now and in the future. The charity’s patron is The Prince of Wales. The Royal Parks Half Marathon was established in 2008 by the Foundation as an annual fundraising initiative to both raise funds to support the Foundation’s work in maintaining London’s Royal Parks and enabling charities to be involved as well. Since its inception the event raised over £43 million for more than 1000 UK charities. It is the only Half-Marathon that travels through central London and four of the Royal Parks and is one of London’s largest half-marathons with over 16,000 participants.
