Royal Parks Half Marathon

On Sunday 13th October a rain soaked Hyde Park saw the start and the finish line of the 2019 Royal Parks half marathon.
All Star Tennis co-founder Ben White was joined by Paul Hawkins and both posted personal best running times of 2:00 and 1.59 respectively…not quite as quick as some of the marathon running on Saturday and Sunday but superb efforts none the less!

Ben commented ‘I would like to say how grateful I am for everyone’s support before and during the race and to all of you who have be able to donate sponsorship to help raise vital funds for the All Star Trust, thank you. It was a massive motivation to get me around the course and so far you have raised an amazing £1500 (which will be matched funded)’

‘I would also like to give a mention to my training partners fellow All Star player Paul Hawkins and cockapoo Luna, for sticking with me in the gruelling pre race miles’
‘If any one would still like to donate there is still time to do so’
The rain held off until just after the finish which was a massive relief to those family and friends who came to support.
What’s next? A full marathon?
