Adrian, are you still looking for contributors ? I intended running the Royal Parks (last year) for a charity, and had raised a significant amount in donations and then a couple of months before the event had to have an operation on my knee. This was compounded by a subsequent operation in November. I was deeply dissapointed not to be able to run and felt significant guilt re the donations that had been made, and paid. I was out of action for over nine months, and at times felt I would never run again. However, following rehab and a "steady" trng programme ..... I've just run the Mont Blanc 10km in Chamonix, which was a little "hilly" and have a place in the Royal Parks (with the same charity) this year ... hoping to "repay" the people who contributed last year ..
