Royal Parks Half Marathon
What's better than winding through London's Royal Parks in all their autumnal splendour with 12,000 like minded runners? London's fastest growing half-marathon also draws crowds of more than 40,000 cheering you all the way.
What: The 13.1-mile route passes through four Royal Parks (Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, St James's Park and Green Park) and iconic landmarks such as Buckingham Palace and the Royal Albert Hall.
When: 8th October 2017
Participation: You must be 18 on race day to take part, but with a flat route this race is perfect for first timers and those seeking to achieve a personal best.
Preparation & Training: Taking on a half marathon is a challenge that will need dedicated training to make sure you are able to enjoy the race, but Pancreatic Cancer UK can provide hints and tips on how best to prepare for race day.
Sponsorship: We ask that charity place runners pay a £35 registration fee and commit to raising a minimum of £350 in sponsorship. Runners who have secured their own ballot place in the race have no sponsorship target or registration fee, we simply ask you raise as much as you can.
