Event description

Description

Get active this autumn and try out a new approach to daylight saving!

Pledge to ignore the autumn clock change and use the extra hour of evening light for exercise and activity.

Join us in Westminster for a fun run or create your own event where you are.

When? Tuesday 31 October at 16.00 for a 16.10 depart (be ready in your jogging gear)
Where? Meet us on the Embankment opposite Portcullis House, 1 Parliament St, Westminster, London SW1A 2JR and near the Westminster Pier.

The run: Two Bridges Run (3.4 miles) which takes in the South Bank, the Millennium Bridge and back on the North Bank.

We will be going at a gentle pace - all levels and groups welcome.

Contact on the day is Chris: 07736 042753

At the start of the run we will synchronise our watches to GMT+1 to experience the run on Single Double Summer Time.

Happy Hour is a grass roots campaign to raise awareness about the benefits of putting the clocks forward an hour throughout the year, also known as Single Double Summer Time.

Benefits include: brighter evenings, safer roads and streets, reduction in carbon emissions, a boost to the economy, more time for sport, leisure and social activities, and wellbeing. It’s all about a new way of doing politics encouraging people to actually try things out and experience the benefits and costs of Single Double Summer Time. We believe policy-making should be better grounded in the lived experiences of citizens and communities. So please get involved.

We have had individuals, communities and organisations take on the happy hour challenge by spending a few hours on Single Double Summer Time to experience lighter evenings, for fun or to raise money for charity.
