Huge thanks to our Wilderness Foundation team who took part in the British London 10K run yesterday in Central London fundraising for the Wilderness Foundation. With rather a damp start, the weather was extremely kind to the runners as they experienced much cooler weather than the week leading up to the event. Central London soon filled up with well-wishers and supporters all along the whole 10K route and our runners friends and family members joined us along the Strand to support their efforts.
‘Wild Things’ – Grace, Bex, Victoria and Sarah – were very ‘wildernessy’ with Grace actually running as a ‘tree’ – great costume design – could have been straight from Vivien Westwood’s latest collection! The four friends joined together with their fundraising and have already exceeded their target of £1000 – congratulations ‘Wild Things’.
Friends Helen and Craig, both South Africans, decided to take part to raise awareness of the Wilderness Foundation’s Forever Wild programme… a huge thank-you to you all for your fantastic efforts on the day but also for choosing to support the charity. It was very appropriate that we were supporting their efforts directly opposite South African House.
For the 15th anniversary of the Vitality British London 10K run, the runners followed a brand new route which included Piccadilly Circus, St James Palace, Regent Street, Oxford Circus, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Parliament Square, Downing Street, before they finished at the Royal Horse Guards & Banqueting House. Standing along the route we were able to see all the runners run past amongst the 20,000 entrants on the day.
