British 10K London Run
On Sunday 2nd July 2006 the Citizenship Foundation hit the streets of London to take part in the British 10K London run.Thousands of people took part in the race, which commenced at 9.45am outside the Hard Rock Café at Hyde Park Corner, passed famous sites such as the Houses of Parliament and 10 Downing Street, and reached the finishing line in Whitehall.
Tony Breslin, Chief Executive of the Citizenship Foundation commented on the run:
‘The fact that 30,000 people running for a full range of charities, were prepared to undertake the run in soaring heats and with good spirit, says much for the state of active citizenship in our society. It was great fun to take part in the Foundation’s team – even if my aching bones will remind me of the experience for the rest of the week’
We would like to thank Tony Breslin, Michael Jelves, Richard John, Andrew Sparrow and Rachael Takens-Milne for running on behalf of the Foundation. The race was won by Patrick Makau of Kenya in a time of 29 minutes and 52 seconds.
