The Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon is a hugely popular event attracting a capacity field of 16,000 runners each year. Primarily a fundraising event, the majority of these runners will be supporting one of the hundreds of charities partnering with the race. Since its launch in 2008, the Half Marathon has raised in excess of £30million for over 650 charities.
Integral to the day are the spectators. Entire families attend Hyde Park, London together to enjoy the day. Therefore, alongside the marathon, the Foundation hosts a Food & Fitness Festival, which attracts an estimated 50,000 visitors each year.
This year – on Sunday October 8th – is the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon’s 10th year and is expected to be the biggest yet.
In support of the health and fitness aspect of the ‘We Are Wild’ campaing, ASMI NEU has confirmed involvement in the ‘Food’ element of the festival offering tastings and samples to all. ASMI has a 3m x 3m stand and will work in partnership with Billingsgate Seafood School to serve the following recipes:
1) Wild Alaska salmon and chive dip
2) Wild Alaska salmon noodles
3) Wild Alaska pollock and chorizo cassoulet
4) Smoky paprika wild Alaska pollock
