Join the North London Cares team and take on the Royal Parks Half Marathon 2022 on Sunday 9th October 2022.

This stunning central London Half Marathon (21km), takes place in some of London'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.

With half a million older people going at least five or six days a week without seeing or speaking to anyone at all, the need to build connections has never been greater.

North London Cares seeks to reduce loneliness amongst older and younger people, alike, by connecting them, through our face to face programmes across Camden and Islington.

However, due to Covid-19 we have had to transition these programmes to virtual ones.

65% of the neighbours we work with count North London Cares networks as their only form of social connection. We are supporting those most at risk of extreme social isolation and at highest risk of severe illness from Covid-19.

In taking on this half marathon, you'll be supporting this work, tackling loneliness and connecting neighbours as we transition out of lockdown and hope to enter into a new phase of face to face/virtual hybrid social clubs.
