 Run the Royal Parks Half for Young Women’s Trust with E2W

Run the Royal Parks Half for Young Women’s Trust with E2W

Katie.Dix / 27 Nov 2020

In April 2019 we were introduced to the Young Women’s Trust and were amazed at the work they do to help Young Women who are struggling to live on low or no pay, to get into work that is right for them. The Young Women’s Trust offers these women support similar to that we offer you, our members. The Young Women's Trust offers free coaching and personalised advice on job applications, conducts research, runs campaigns and works with young women to build confidence and advocate for fair financial futures.

We are calling E2W members to register an participate in the Royal Parks Half Marathon, to help us raise as much money for Young Women's Trust. As you all know, the global pandemic has impacted many of our lives, including those who need the support of the Trust. At E2W, our fundraising plans were also disrupted, which is why we are asking for as many members as possible to get involved in this icnoic run!

The 2020 race has now been moved to 11th April 2021 – we hope you can join us then!

This stunning 13.1 mile route takes in the capital's world-famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of London's eight Royal Parks - Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James's Park and Kensington Gardens.

When: Sunday 11 April 2021
Where: Hyde Park, London 
Distance: 13.1 miles
