RUN. SMILE. HELP. LEGAL RUN 2015

Legal Run 2015 – charity running event of the legal society in aid of children under the care of the Podari Zhizn and Gift of Life foundations has reached London! The race will be held on the 31st of May in Primrose Hill of Regents Park.

The first event was organised last year by KIAP law firm in Moscow to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Russian Advocacy and the International Children’s Day. This year the event goes global: apart from major events in London, Moscow, St Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Novosibirsk and Samara, it will be joined by lawyers from more than 10 cities across the world – Helsinki, St. Gallen, Belgorod, Yekaterinburg, Kursk, Volgograd, Tomsk, Kaliningrad, Ufa, Ivanovo and Kazan. On 31st of May they will go into the streets in their towns, into parks or embankments and will run their distance, making a donation to the Gift of Life foundation.

London’s venue, Primrose Hill, is located on the northern side of Regent’s Park. The Run will start right behind the top of the hill, which is one of the six protected viewpoints in London. The Run follows a route around the park between the beautiful greenery with the magnificent view.
