The Inaugural Tunnel 2 Towers Run (T2T) London 2012 (approx 5 Km) took place on Sunday the 21st October 2012 and was closely followed by the second Tunnel 2 Towers Run 2013 on Sunday the 21st July. Now it’s an annual event. Taking our inspiration from the FDNY Tunnel to Towers Run organised by the Stephen Siller Foundation.
Our event begins at Southwark Park in Bermondsey with the run itself starting in the aptley named Brunel Road. The run then went from South to North under the River Thames through the Rotherhithe Tunnel to Wapping and Finished in London’s Docklands in Billingsgate Market in the shadow of Canary Wharfs Towers. Where we held a street party till late afternoon. Sound Equipment Hire, Lighting and crew supplied by Showcraft.co.uk
Every Service, Emergency and Armed was represented with a huge turn out and this took various forms, be it in uniform, protective equipment or running wear. Money was raised for hundreds of charties including the Firefighters Charity, the Blue Lamp Foundation, Katie Piper Foundation, Operation Florian The Bomb Disposal Charity ‘Felix’, The London Fire Brigade Welfare Fund to name a few.
The initial 2012 T2T event, which was a huge success, was programmed as close as possible to the 9/11 disaster showing support for our American Brothers and Sisters, whilst also taking into account the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Our second T2T London was set on Sunday the 21st July close to our own 7/7 and was also the date of the Foiled London Bomb plot and also that as a historical date this was the day that Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon, “Small Step for Man, A Giant Leap for Mankind (Greenwich Meantime that is because for the USA this took place late night on the 20th July 1969 !!).
