Blog Blog Royal Parks 2017 The Royal Parks Half Marathon 2017 was a huge success and a fantastic day for Team ReachOut; the sun was shining, the birds were chirping and the Morris Men were dancing! 20 fantastic runners represented ReachOut including ex-mentee and current ambassador Emmanuel, Joanne from our corporate partner Macquarie Bank, and 11 of the World Famous Hammersmith Morris Men who danced the entire 13.1 mile course! Imagine MORRIS DANCING 13.1 MILES. 😯 How quintessentially English. Bravo, chaps! You win the @RoyalParksHalf today. 😂🏃🏼🕺🏻 pic.twitter.com/Q4IchMhJ7H — Clare Chater (@clarechater) October 8, 2017 Members of the ReachOut team were stationed at the 7 mile mark to cheer on the runners - Fundraising Officer, Matt Harper, sang and chanted down a megaphone to keep spirits high and even gave out "free" high fives to every runner he saw! All our runners did an amazing job, raising over £6,000 between them, and they definitely did us proud on the day. Huge thanks to them all! If you’d like to run for ReachOut we have early bird spaces available for the Hackney Half Marathon in May 2018 where we're a local partner, or you can look at our events page to get involved with other events.
