Hyde Park is the venue for an event that supports the fight against heart disease. The British Heart Foundation Hyde Park Run 2013, taking place on Saturday, October 5, offers participants the opportunity to raise money by walking, jogging or running once or twice around a five kilometre route in one of London’s most famous parks.
The route takes in views of the Serpentine and the park’s beautiful Italian gardens. The whole route is on pavement and is fairly flat so is suitable for every level of runner. This route is also buggy and wheelchair friendly, and is fully signposted, while water will be available en route and at the start and finish.
There are still places left in the BHF Hyde Park Run 2013, so why not get friends, family or colleagues together to take part, and raise as much sponsorship money as you can? All participants will receive a timing chip, medical support, massage, training guidance, fundraising support and a welcome pack. All finishers will receive a medal.
This year the event also features a one-kilometre fun run for participants under the age of 16. Like the main run, it’s a fully marshalled and signed. Before the run, those taking part can join in a child friendly warm up at 9.30am, and the fun run starts before the main ten-kilometre event.
