Royal Parks Half Marathon – 9 October

Apply for a charity place in the Royal Parks Half Marathon

This unique half marathon gives you the chance to take in some of the capital’s world-famous landmarks on closed roads. The event gets its name from the route, passing through four of London’s eight Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.

The ballot opens in March, and if you would like to double your chances, you can then apply for one of our charity places. You must enter the ballot to be eligible for a charity place.

We kindly ask each runner to raise a minimum of £300. We will help you with your fundraising and training every step of the way.
