Run Royal Parks Half Marathon

Been requested by Sara to see if anyone can run the Royal Parks half for this very worthwhile Charity, can you help:
--
I'm running the Royal Parks half marathon for Bone Cancer Research Trust on Sunday 12th October. It's a charity which is close my heart as my husband sadly died from osteosarcoma in 2009.  They gave us loads of support through his illness and have continued to support us since he died.

The charity has contacted me as they have some charity places for anyone who would be interested in joining the team. Because it a charity place runners are asked to raise a minimum of £300, but there is a reduction in entry fee from £40 to £20 if you mention my name on entry. I know it may seem a lot of money to raise but it is an amazing run in and around the Royal parks for a very good cause.

Outcomes for primary bone cancer haven't improved for over 25 years and BCRT are a supportive charity funding vital research in to primary bone cancers to improve the outcome for this group of patients.
 
This is the link if anyone is interested in running for the charity.

Thank you,

MK parkrun - 9 August


The MK parkrun on Saturday 9 August is going to be a big one for DLRR with lots going on for everyone, we have:  
  • We have Glenn Beginners group doing the Graduation parkrun - if you could buddy a new runner then please get in touch with Glenn
 
  • Also AFTER parkrun has finished at around 10.00 we will be doing a DLRR Green Mile for DLRR members, this will be a timed mile on the last mile of the parkrun course - no need to register, just come along on the day (more further down mail)

DLRR Family parkrun

The DLRR family parkrun Saturday, 9 August - bring the family to parkrun and run with them. Details for children are on the parkrun web-site (http://support.parkrun.com/hc/en-us/articles/200566273-Can-children-take-part- ), but are repeated below:

-----
Can children take part?

We love to see happy children taking part and finishing. We ask that children under 11 are accompanied at all times by a parent or guardian.

If you would like your child to receive a time then you will need to register them separately. However, please note that they must be able to complete the course themselves in order to register and have their barcode scanned (ie if they have been pushed around in a buggy, pushchair etc then they cannot have a barcode scanned).

Please visit here to register.

If you're registering for someone else, do remember to check out our policy on registering others.

We should make clear that the governing body (UK Athletics) say children aged under 13 should not take part in any road race of distance greater than 4km. However, provided younger children are not put under any undue pressure to perform by teachers, coaches, parents or guardians they may take part for fun.

Green Mile

Saturday 9 August at 10:00am we are launching the DLRR green mile. This is a timed mile on the last mile of MK parkrun.
It is free, open to all club members and all abilities, your times will also be recorded in our club results.
We plan to deliver this on a regular basis at least monthly. We will need 4 people each time for it to happen and are looking for a couple of helpers to get the first one off the ground. Please let Spencer or Martin know if you are able to help for the 9 August. Further dates will be published shortly.

Come along regularly to test your speed and fitness within a fun group environment and compare your improvements. This will culminate in a timed mile on the track on Wednesday 26 November to close the season.
