Want to run in the Royal Parks Half Marathon? Join Team NGN today! (Read 18 times)


    Let down because you didn’t get a place to run at the Royal Parks Half Marathon through the public ballot? Well, The Nurture Group Network has got your back. We’ve got some places and we’re looking for some fantastic runners, beginners or experienced, to join Team NGN and run on our behalf at one of the UK’s most beautiful half marathons.


    The Royal Parks Half Marathon has established itself as one of the UK’s most popular running events since 2008. The marathon is a 13.1-mile route that starts and finishes in Hyde Park and will guide you by some of London’s most iconic landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, as well as through four of the eight royal parks – Hyde Park, Green Park, St James’ Park and Kensington Gardens.


    So who are we?


    The Nurture Group Network (NGN) is a charity that works tirelessly to break cycles of low achievement by ensuring that an unequal start in life does not mean an unequal chance to engage in learning. We operate throughout the UK and internationally to help children who are experiencing social, emotional, behavioural and mental health issues to remove barriers to learning and better engage with their education. NGN works to promote the use of nurturing principles in education, ensuring that every disadvantaged and disengaged child has access to a nurturing intervention, allowing them to develop the skills and resilience they need to make the most of learning and school.


    To join our team, you will need to pay a non-refundable registration fee of £35 and pledge to raise a minimum of £350 on Virgin Money Giving. You will be provided with your own running shirt, as well as a pack full of fundraising ideas to help get your fundraising off the ground.


    Your fantastic efforts to raise money by running for us at the Royal Parks Half Marathon means that you will help us to continue our support for some of the UK's most marginalized and vulnerable children.
