New York celebrated Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee in New York’s Central Park with The GREAT British Run on 31 May.
The GREAT British Run was a costumed 6K sponsored by the British Consulate-General in New York. All proceeds benefited two charities: GEORGE/St George’s Society and Disabled Sports USA.
In addition to the run the event featured live music by BritishMania and other British activities, including a Rugby Skills & Games Challenge. The clinic was sponsored by Play Rugby USA in partnership with Premiereship Rugby and featured 12 community coaches from each of the 12 English Premiership Rugby Teams along with some of the budding athletes in the Play Rugby USA program.
