On Sunday 11th October 2015 we cheered on 16 amazing supporters of Ace Africa as they completed the gruelling 13.1 mile run around four of London’s most beautiful Royal Parks in aid of Ace Africa. The atmosphere on the day was electric with thousands of spectators and runners lining the streets of central London in Sunday’s brilliant Sunshine.

All of our runners managed to complete the course in impressive times with our fastest runner, Edward Pycraft, crossing the finish line at 01:38:46 followed closely behind by Max Harrison at 01:39:38. Below are our top 5 Ace runners. Congratulations to you all!

We are thrilled to announce that our current fundraising total stand at £11,862! These vital funds will go a huge way in supporting our programmes across rural Kenya and Tanzania.

We would like to say a HUGE thank you to all of our Ace runners on the day and most importantly thank you from the many thousands of children and community members you have managed to help along the way.
