Street Child are delighted to announce that after a successful inaugural event in February this year, The Craft Half will be taking place in Lee Valley Regional Park on 2nd September 2018.
The Craft Half is the perfect half marathon for beer lovers – runners will be rewarded with half pints of craft beer at fuelling stations every two miles. Runners can also opt for the less intense 10K option – all the benefits of the Craft Half but just one lap of the route. The fun doesn’t stop at the finishing line – Street Child will host the ‘Halfter Party’ with all runners and supporters invited into the event village complete with live music, sizzling Street Food and, of course, more craft beer!
Lucy James, organiser of the Craft Half says, “We thought the idea of running with beer might be popular and we were right – our February Craft Half on Wimbledon Common sold out! So September’s event at Lee Valley Regional Park will be 5 times bigger”.
Organising awesome beer-related running events is only a small part of what Street Child do so all participants are asked to commit to fundraising £150 in support of Street Child’s work to give some of the world’s most vulnerable children the chance to go to school and learn. £150 is enough to help 5 children to go to school for a whole year.
Founder and CEO of Street Child, Tom Dannatt says, “Street Child has helped to change thousands of lives. The fundraising generated by the Craft Half is a huge opportunity to continue to make a real difference to some of the most vulnerable children around the world”
The Craft Half will take place on Sunday 2nd September at Lee Valley Regional Park. Race entry is £25 and participants will receive 6 half pints of craft beer around the course (3 half pints for 10k runners) plus a limited edition Craft Half running top, an exclusive commemorative pint glass for crossing the finish line and access to the Halfter Party. There’s a 20% discount on race entry for groups of 6+ runners so invite your friends to take part! To sign up visit: www.street-child.co.uk/craft-h
