We have a limited number of spaces in the Royal Parks Half Marathon and Swim Serpentine events this autumn and we need YOU to take on the challenge to help us fight hunger and tackle food waste in the UK.

Every £1 raised provides 4 meals for people in need, so your fundraising has an amazing impact.

We can offer support with your fundraising and hints and tips for training success. Places will be offered on a first come, first served basis so get in touch today!
