Six dedicated runners have signed up to raise funds for the Youth Sport Trust by taking part in the Vitality British 10km London Run on Sunday 12 July 2015.

The race will start at 09:35 from Hyde Park Corner (near the Bomber Command Memorial) and the route will take the runners through Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Regent Street and Piccadilly Circus to the finishing line in Whitehall.

The runners have committed to raise at least £200 each to help transform the lives of young people through PE and school sport. They include: Youth Sport Trust Development Manager, Jennie Jordan; Harvey Grammar School Assistant Headteacher, Marc Stevenson; Youth Sport Trust Project Manager, Francesca Kelly; Youth Sport trust Director of Fundraising, Helen Vost; Children's Social Care Worker, Ruth Murdock; and Youth Sport Trust Athlete Mentor, Tim Prendergast.

Tim is a visually impaired Paralympian athlete who has competed mainly in middle distance events at Athens 2004, Beijing 2008 and London 2012. Now in his eighth year as an Athlete Mentor, Tim has decided to take part in the Vitality British 10k in the hopes that by sharing his own experience of overcoming disability to succeed, he will inspire the pupils he meets to overcome their own obstacles.

If you would like to come along to the event and cheer for our runners please contact fundraising@youthsporttrust.org for more information.
