In our series featuring our runners and walkers in The Royal Parks Half Marathon, Headbox´s Alec Robinson explains what persuaded him to support Meeting Needs.

“I am delighted to be running the Royal Parks Half for the second time – and this is the first time I have run for Meeting Needs! I have been super privileged to learn about Meeting Needs from my work at HeadBox.

“I am very proud to be running for Meeting Needs. It is so wonderful to be able to raise funds for smaller charities which are really doing some incredible work.

“I definitely caught the bug in the first half I did and I learned then that the atmosphere and the support I received from friends and family is what gets you through. This has motivated me ever since to want to run it again! I’ve learned that races are all about what you put in, so the hard work will definitely pay off, you just have to go for it!”

The Royal Parks Half Marathon is a great event industry gathering in London´s beautiful parks, starting and finishing in Hyde Park. If you would like to take part in The Royal Parks Half Marathon on Sunday, October 13, 2024 and raise funds for Meeting Needs, please contact
