10k.4Last Sunday 6 runners very kindly took part in the British London 10K on behalf of the Wilderness Foundation.  Chris, Lucy, Jamie, Claire, Jo and Amy all clad in their Wilderness Foundation running vests joined over 10,ooo runners for a very early start in the heart of London.
Starting on Piccadilly outside The Guards & Calvary Club,they ran passed the new WW2 Bomber Command Memorial which was unveiled by HM Queen Elizabeth 11 in June 2012. They then ran passed The Ritz, St. James’s Palace, Trafalgar Square, the magnificent St. Paul’s Cathedral, the unique London Eye, the worlds most famous clock Big Ben, the British Houses of Parliament, the historic Westminster Abbey before finishing on Whitehall  at the junction of Royal Horse Guards and Banqueting House after passing Downing Street .  The route was lined with cheering supporters from friends, families and colleagues of those running to all the charities represented in the event.
With so many runners, it was very hard to spot them on the racecourse, although we did manage to get photographic evidence of Chris running, but we were delighted to meet up with them afterwards in Whitehall Gardens, to say a huge thank-you and to present them with some well-earned chocolate rewards and a certificate.
Between them, the team have raised close to £2500, a truly fantastic sum.   Everyone at the Wilderness Foundation would like to say a big thank-you to the team for taking on the challenge and to everyone who sponsored them.
