Royal Parks Half Marathon

Royal Parks Half Marathon


Sunday 10 October 2021

Registration fee £25 and minimum fundraising target £500

This beautiful Autumn half marathon takes you past some of the capital’s world famous landmarks and through four of London’s Royal Parks; Hyde Park, Green Park, St James’s Park, and Kensington Gardens. A beautifully scenic but relatively flat route, on closed roads, it’s perfect for those who have been increasing their running distances over the past few months and looking for their first big challenge, or those striving to improve their half marathon PB!

Entry is by ballot only, but you can secure your place by signing up today and being part of #TeamNorwood. We’ll support you ever step of the way but together we can support children, families and people of any age with learning disabilities or autism to overcome challenges of their own.

So get your running shoes ready and rise to the challenge. Sign up below or contact the Challenges Team for more information.

Already got a place?

If you have already managed to secure a ballot place, we’d still love you to be part of #TeamNorwood. There is no minimum fundraising requirement, just raise what you can, but you still get all the same benefits as our charity place runners. Drop us a line or let us know here

By accepting a place to run for Norwood in the Royal Parks Half Marathon you are expected to raise the minimum of £500 which does not include Gift Aid or Matched Giving. Although this is the required amount, do not treat this as a target as Norwood needs each and every one of our runners to raise as much as possible to ensure we continue to provide vital support to the thousands of people in our care. If you do not reach the required minimum of £500 1 month after the event on 11 November 2020 then you will be required to set up a direct debit to cover the remaining balance. If for whatever reason you do not participate in the challenge, sponsorship forms and any sponsorship monies received should be sent to Norwood or returned to the sponsors if requested.

Your fundraising will not include:

 • Collecting on private property (including shops, pubs etc) without first obtaining permission of the owner of the private property.

 • Raising funds by carrying out door-to-door or unsolicited collections.
