Parallel London is a new disability-led event that has been specifically designed for anyone to participate, regardless of age, disability or health condition.
It is intended to be world’s first fully accessible and inclusive mass participation run and the inaugural event will be held on Sunday 4th September 2016 in London’s Olympic Park.
Disability Rights UK has secured some guaranteed (non-ballot) places which we are offering to members and supporters in exchange for a small registration fee and fundraising commitment.
There are a range of set distances you could choose, from 100m to 10k. Some of the reasons we think this will be fun are:
Running through the fantastic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
Shared experience of participation rather than just running against the clock
Accessible and interactive day out featuring art, culture and technology zones, food areas and family spaces
Linked to common aims of positively changing attitudes and understanding of disability and impairment
