Five Fantastic Reasons to Run Royal Parks Half in 2019

I’m Daisy, and I work in the fundraising team for Missing People. Last year I challenged myself to take on my first running event to help missing people and their families. Before signing up I didn’t consider myself a runner, but I managed to complete Royal Parks Half in one piece and I actually had loads of fun. I really surprised myself by discovering a love of running. Who knows, you might discover your next passion.
