With the public ballots now closed, the International Seafarers’ Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN) is offering a limited number of places on its teams in two of this year’s most exciting fundraising events.

For those fancying a challenging day in the saddle, ISWAN has five places in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 on Sunday 29 July 2018. The 100-mile route was made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics – starting in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, it offers a traffic-free ride along closed roads in the capital and through stunning countryside in Surrey, with a spectacular finish on The Mall in central London. The event is suitable for a range of cycling abilities and 25,000 amateur cyclists are expected to take part this year. We ask that team members raise £575 each in sponsorship, which will go towards our work for seafarers’ welfare worldwide.

For those preferring running over cycling, ISWAN has 15 spots to fill on its team for this year’s Royal Parks Half Marathon, taking place on Sunday 14 October 2018. The stunning 13.1-mile route on closed roads passes some of the capital’s world-famous landmarks, including Buckingham Palace and Horse Guards Parade, and travels through four of London’s eight Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens. We are asking anyone joining our team to raise £400 each in sponsorship.
