Hornby’s own Montana Hoeren will be running the Royal Parks Half Marathon in October to help raise money for WWF.
Now in its 12th year, the challenging 13.1-mile route will take 16,000 runners through four of London’s eight Royal Parks, including Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as pass iconic London landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Trafalgar Square and the Houses of Parliament.
“I love animals! So this year I'm running the Royal Parks Half Marathon for WWF, to help save and protect animals, as well as highlight and hopefully reduce the human impact on the environment,” Montana explains. “We only have one planet, let’s look after it! If you can spare a pound or two to help me support the charity and to encourage my legs to run that little bit faster, that would be great!”
The World Wide Fund for Nature is an international non-governmental organisation founded in 1961. Its core aim is to help safeguard wildlife and protect the world's most treasured wild places from being overexploited for their natural resources.
