Project Overview

Parallel London was a wonderful opportunity to deliver a fully all-inclusive project for those of all abilities. The premise behind Parallel is that it is a charity fun run at various levels and whatever your ability you are invited to run (or walk, or wheel) in races 10K, 5K, 2K or 1K.


Critically, we had to make this event 100% accessible and that involved bringing in 13 trucks of Matrax trackway to allow wheelchair users full access of the site.


We also installed a stage, multiple marquees and a ‘super sensory’ run.


The event was a great success and I look forward to working on future Parallel events!  

Sadly, I was VERY busy during the live period, and I was therefore not able to take any pictures of the event!
