Are you looking for an event to raise awareness of dyspraxia and sponsorship for the Dyspraxia Foundation? Is our usual British 10k event overwhelming and daunting? Or just looking for something the whole family can take part in? Then why not come join us on Sunday 3rd September in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for the Parallel London event. In 2016 trustee Matt, his girlfriend Rosie, youth member (and blogger) alongside Natalie, youth member (and blogger) and her dad took part in the first event. All reported back on how wonderfully inclusive the event is, people of all ages, abilities and disabilities took part across a variety of events from 100m to 10km! There is no time limit, everyone is allowed to complete their distance and the pace that suits them! Note that pushchairs, wheelchairs and all other mobility devices are fully allowed, when they say all-inclusive they really mean it!
There is also an amazing event village, last year everyone could have a free slice of cheese on toast and there was a choice of free ice cream for everyone – this includes the spectators! The event village also has lots of accessible activities to take part in and the chance too visit a wide range of exhibitors!
The key point to remember is that Parallel London is for all ages and abilities; anybody can take part in one of five distances (10km, 5km, 1km, Super Sensory 1km, 100m) set in the majestic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to raise awareness and generate funds for the Dyspraxia Foundation.
