Disabled and non-disabled unite to run, walk, wheel, push. All ages. All abilities. No cut-off times. No excuses.

Take your place on the start line at the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the location of the London2012 Paralympics. Choose your challenge (10k, 5k, 1k, 100m) and be part of sporting history.

What is different about this event?

Participants are welcome to use whatever it takes to finish the course, from day, electric and racing wheelchairs to race-runners, walking frames and children’s buggies. Anyone who needs a helping hand is welcome to bring a buddy to push, guide or accompany them free of charge. You needn’t be in it to win it. Everyone will be celebrated for crossing the finish line. What's more, the event is backed by the Mayor of London and in its first year Parallel formed part of the UK’s build-up festivities to the Rio2016 Paralympics.
