Calling all runners – OTW needs YOU!
Over The Wall is calling on runners of all abilities to join our team and take part in the ASICS London 10K on Sunday 21st July.
This popular event is in central London and is a flat, scenic route passing many of the city’s landmarks.
Entries have officially sold out, but you can still run for Over The Wall – places are just £20 to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. All you need to do is register with us before 15th July and aim to raise £250 as a sponsorship target. If you already have a place, maybe you can support us and set your own target – and you can still be part of the Over The Wall team!
Event organisers ASICS have organised live bands, DJs and cheering fans to motivate you on the day and there are training tips on their website, which says, “When we run together, amazing things happen. We unite in a common aim, we spur each other on, the stuff that divides us falls away and we keep on going.
So, this summer we invite runners of all abilities to unite in one of the world’s most inclusive and diverse cities to celebrate the things that bring us together. When you run the ASICS London 10k you’re running united, and together we can achieve anything.”
This ethos is similar to our own as Over The Wall’s camps are designed to enable children to reach beyond the perceived limitations of their illness and rediscover a whole new world of possibilities, helping to build their confidence, self-esteem and social skills.
