Sunday 10 July saw 24 LPO musicians, members of staff and Board members pounding the streets of London as they took part in the Vitality Run Series British 10K, to raise money for the Orchestra’s BrightSparks schools concerts.
The team come from a wide range of fitness backgrounds and all did incredibly well, with three of our runners – Lyndon Meredith, Henry Baldwin and David Lale - coming in the top 50 runners out of a total 11,292 participants.
The LPO runners were spurred on by a fantastic group of supporters who cheered them on along the course. ‘Go go LPO’, ‘Up the tempo’ and ‘Run like the woodwind’ were but some of the chants that accompanied the runners on their way!
Team LPO has raised a fantastic £15,898 so far before Gift Aid, which will enable 1,766 young people to attend one of the LPO’s specially designed schools concerts.
