Parallel London: A fully inclusive event like no other
Sunday 3 September 2017
The feedback we get from members matters hugely to us and when it came to fundraising events it’s clear not everyone is able to take part in regular race events – running might be a physically impossibility.
We have searched out something that is accessible to everyone. Parallel London is the first all-age, all-ability mass participation fun run event. Whether you run, walk, hop, skip or wheel your way to the finish line, there are four distances to choose from:
• 1k Super Sensory Walk
After the wild success of the inaugural Parallel London last year, the event returns this year to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park this autumn, on Sun 3 September 2017. You’ll get to take in the sights of the site of the 2012 Olympics and there’s a free family festival too. Read on below for more information on the race events and the family festival, as well as our Orbit Abseil fundraiser which happens to be taking place in the same place on the same day. If you’re keen to take part email firstname.lastname@example.org
Ways to get involved at Parallel London
Accessible fun run
Volunteers can take up the challenge in five races—the 100m, 1km, 5km, 10km and Super Sensory 1km. No time limits. No cut off times. All participants are invited to bring a buddy to guide or push them free of charge.
Register for the fun run
Super Sensory 1km
On this short race, participants will exercise their senses throughout a course packed full with sensory experience, from smells and sounds to colours and textures, tailored to those who need sensory support.
Register for the Super Sensory walk
There will also be a free festival aimed at showing people how to live well and maintain an active lifestyle. It will be a celebration of inclusiveness with entertainment and workshops on 6 different themes. Please do email us, and register your interest now at email@example.com
Abseil from the UK’s tallest sculpture for The Haemophilia Society
On the very same day as Parallel London, The Orbit Abseil will also be taking place at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. There are still a couple of spots to take part in this, the highest freefall abseil from the Orbit tower in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
If heights aren’t your thing you can always make a day of it and watch safely from the ground. But if you’re aged 14 or older and fancy yourself as an adrenaline junkie, get in touch!
