About our club
Parallel London is the world’s only fully inclusive multi-distance fun run and family festival, held at the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on the 3rd September 2017. Open to all ages and abilities, it gets people of ages, abilities, shapes and sizes moving. The fun run is the centrepiece event of our Free Family Festival, which showcases the very best in accessible technology, art and culture, food and drink and much more.
Last year we had over 3,000 people participating in the festival with over 40% of those having disabilities. We hope to grow that number this year and encourage more people to sign up and take part in this great event.

The ‘Games Makers’ who volunteered for London 2012 and similarly our volunteer team in 2016 were at the heart of its success and triumph. Therefore, we are proud to once again put a call out to the nation to support this ground-breaking and growing event. We really hope you’ll help us make Parallel London the very best day it can be.
No volunteering experience is necessary. What we’re looking for is buckets of enthusiasm and a happy-to-muck-in attitude. We have developed an exceptional online disability awareness course which we will send over to you and this is something that can really boost your CV and credibility for further work and volunteering. Not only that but we’ll be throwing in a free t-shirt and lunch to say thank you and we will also contribute £5.00 towards your travel for the day – but we know you do it for the love! As well as all this, you will also meet likeminded people and hopefully make some new friends along the way too. But most of all, you will be being part of a huge movement of support for the disabled community.
