Running for refuge!

It’s going to be a marathon and a half…

Team Benefit are running for Refuge charity once again, this time it is the Royal Parks half marathon! Royal Parks half marathon is an amazingly popular event – last year public places sold out in just 3 hours! With its serene course winding its way through four of London’s Royal Parks, starting and ending in Hyde Park, it takes  in some of the capitals most iconic views including Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, and the London Eye!
