The Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon gives runners the chance to take in great views of the capital city and many of London’s historic landmarks including Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Houses of Parliament and the Royal Albert Hall. Join our fight and raise funds for young lives against cancer.
This event was set to go ahead in October but due to the Corona virus pandemic it has been postponed. Take part in the first ever April Royal Parks Half Marathon!
Unfortunately, this event is now closed to new registrations.
If you would like to take part in a London based half marathon then we do have places in The 2022 London Landmarks Half Marathon.
If you’ve already got your own place you can still join Team Young Lives and help support children and young people with cancer by raising whatever you can. We’d absolutely love to have you on our team.
Bespoke training support to get you over the finish line feeling great
Fundraising help and support
Super cool kit to wear on race day
The loudest of cheers on race day – we may have to be more than 2m away but you’ll still hear us
When a child is diagnosed with cancer it threatens everything, for them and their family.
At a time when they should be busy being children, enjoying their rollercoaster teenage years or finding their feet at uni, life becomes full of fear. Fear of treatment, but also of families being torn apart, of overwhelming money worries, mental health stretched to breaking point, of having nowhere to turn, no one to talk to.
At Young Lives vs Cancer, we get that. We are the charity that helps children and young people and their families find the strength to face whatever cancer throws at them. But every day 12 more children and young people hear the devastating news they have cancer. We’ll face it all together – but we can’t do it without you.
We’re really gutted that so many 2020 events were postponed or cancelled. We know we’re not in the clear yet, and you may be worried about booking onto this event and it being cancelled or postponed. But rest assured there is no risk!
Your safety is always our priority and if we or the event oragnisers don’t feel it’s safe for your event to go ahead then we will contact you to discuss this with you. All events will be council approved, will be COVID secure and will only go ahead in line with government guidance. We know it’s tricky to think ahead in times like these, but don’t worry, we’ll keep you updated every step of the way.
Normally our registration fees are non-refundable but if the Royal Parks Half Marathon is cancelled because of COVID, we will happily offer you a full refund of your registration fee.
