Kate Middleton, Prince William And Prince Harry Run For A Good Cause

The three got competitive (for a good cause)!

Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry laced up their shoes and hit the London Marathon Community Track Sunday morning at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London.

But it wasn’t just to take a Sunday morning jog. Instead the trio showed up to support Heads Together, a campaign they’ve formed that highlights mental health.

According to their website, Heads Together brings together partnerships between The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry with inspiring charities that focus on tackling stigma, raising awareness and providing vital help for people with mental health challenges.

Alongside the three on Sunday, February 5, were 150 other runners who volunteer for Team Heads Together and are preparing to run the 2017 London Marathon in support of the campaign.

While the three royals weren’t there to run a marathon, they did complete the first leg of the race, each completing 50 meters.

It ended up being a tight race, but Harry came in first place, with William coming in right behind him and then Kate.

People reported that Prince William yelled out to Kate, “You nearly beat me!” and joked that he had tunnel vision during the race.

Shortly after, the three royals paid a visit to Copper Box Arena, a multi-sports venue that was used to house part of the 2012 Olympic competitions, to chat with team members of Heads Together. They discussed preparations for the marathon and also informed runners how they can help turn the 2017 race into a “mental health marathon.”

By the looks of the photos, it appears they all had a wonderful time all while supporting such an important cause.
