Mental health charity Mind calls for runners from Hounslow to sign up for Royal Parks half marathon

First published in Where I Live by

Mental health charity Mind is looking for 10 people from Hounslow to join its team of runners in a half marathon.

The Royal Parks half marathon takes place in Hyde Park on October 10 - world mental health day.

To mark the date - 10/10/10 - Mind is calling for 10 volunteers from each London borough to race the 13.1-mile course.

The event, now in its third year, attracts up to 12,500 runners and raises money for more than 160 charities, last year raising more than £2.5m for good causes.

Mind says that one in four people will experience a mental health problem at some point in their lives, and it is aiming to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds.

To sign up for Mind's team visit

The deadline is August 27.
