Thousands of Bat Girls and Super Men donned their masks and tights and descended upon Regent’s Park in a bid to make the UK a more charitable place to live on Sunday 17th May 2015 for our iconic Do it for Charity Superhero Run!
What’s more, we had a real life hero in our midst! On what proved to be a beautifully sunny Sunday, four time Olympian skier Chemmy Alcott pulled on her cape and turned into her alter-ego Wonder Woman as she joined us on the day raising funds for Right to Play.
Runners supporting over 50 extraordinary UK charities joined us for the 5 or 10k fun run and it truly was an amazing, and inspiring, day. Participants met their charities before pulling on their costumes, unleashing their inner hero, then went to get warmed up with our personal trainer Sylvia, who did a fantastic job of getting the crowd energised and ready to run.
After taking on the picturesque route, our worthy runners received their medals and got to relax and enjoy the sunshine!
