Parallel London

Parallel London is a fully accessible fun run and free family festival at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Sunday 3 September 2017.

There’s a 10km, 5km, 1km, 100m and the Super Sensory 1km.

All ages and abilities. No cut off times.

Everybody running side by side.

The Super Sensory 1km supports memory by getting participants to complete a course full of multi-sensory experiences, from sound and smell, to textures and colour.

This course has been specifically designed to engage all participants to the fullest, including:

  • Individuals with profound and multiple learning disabilities
  • Individuals on the autistic spectrum who engage with the world in a primarily sensory way and welcome the opportunity to rehearse a situation before entering it
  • Individuals who need sensory support to remember an event. This may include people with late-stage dementia or specific brain damage

The sensory world is a lot of fun and sensory stimulation can be used to support everyone’s memory. So, if you are wondering if this event is for you, yes, it is. Everybody is welcome.

Participants who need a helping hand are welcome to bring a friend or family member, free of charge, to push, guide or simply accompany them throughout the course.
