Calling all runners! Prisoners’ Education Trust is proud to announce that we will be taking part in this year’s Royal Parks Half Marathon and we need you to get involved. The Royal Parks Half Marathon is one of the UK’s most scenic and picturesque city races in the world, and is becoming increasingly popular attracting over 16,000 runners each year. The stunning 13.1 mile race route will allow you to take in the spectacular sites of London and four of its most stunning Royal Parks - Hyde Park, Green Park, St James Park and Kensington Gardens.

So are you up for the challenge? Prisoners’ Education Trust has fiveplaces for this monumental event. The race starts in Hyde Park and you will take in the beautiful scenery as you run past Green Park, St James Park, the Houses of Parliament, and Victoria Embankment. As well as enjoying the amazing atmosphere, you will support PET’s vital work providing educational opportunities for men and women in prison.

If you are interested in joining #TeamPET! Simply email and we can help you raise funds and give you some top training tips! Your support would be amazing!

There are lots of ways to raise money for PET, whether at school, college, work or with friends and family. Our A - Z of Fundraising will give you some ideas, whether its a book club, tea morning (with mug shots?), clothes swap or mufti day. If fundraising at school or college, you can link your activities to our Ambassador Programme and make your voice count on behalf of those who are so often ignored.

For those who prefer a more physical challenge, you could consider anything from marathons and bike rides, to sky dives and more.  Find out more here.
