Interested in taking part?
If you are interested in taking part in the Royal Parks Half Marathon next year, please get in touch and we will let you know when places open.
Appreciate the unique splendour that London offers by having so many leafy green spaces.
The 13.1-mile route starts in Hyde Park, then passes through Green Park, St James’ Park and Kensington Gardens. You’ll also run past world-famous London landmarks like Buckingham Palace, Horse Guards Parade and the Royal Albert Hall.
As part of our Royal Parks running team you will receive:
- a fundraising pack with runners' sweepstake and sponsorship forms
- a t-shirt or running vest, with free iron on letters
- dedicated fundraising support and advice
- on-the-day support - cheering points around the route and a dedicated area in the charity marquee, with massages and snacks
If you're thinking of running for us and want access to qualified trainers as well as the chance to chat with other #TeamMarsden runners, check out our runners Facebook group.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014. Every time I got bad news I completely fell apart, but I was given so much support by the nurses and doctors at The Royal Marsden.
The staff really are amazing. The care and support they gave me was second to none.
Finally, after my mastectomy, I was given the all clear – such a momentous day!
I am running to give something back to the charity and to support others going through their own cancer journey. I am forever grateful.
