Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon for Breast Cancer Now

Event Information

Date: Sunday 9 October 2016

Distance: Half marathon (13 miles)

Registration fee: £30

Minimum sponsorship pledge: £350

Our 2016 charity places are now open.

This beautiful half marathon takes you through four of London's Royal Parks: Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, St James’s Park and The Green Park.

Runners will experience the route in all its autumnal splendour, while passing historic landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament and the Royal Albert Hall.

Whether you’re looking to beat a personal best, or just cross the finish line, every stride you make around the magnificent views of the capital city will help fund life-saving research. And we’ll support you every step of the way.

You’ll not only get your very own Breast Cancer Now technical running vest, but access to our online Training Zone, the complete support of our experienced Events team and a fundraising pack with everything you’ll need to raise money. You’ll also get an invitation to join our exclusive running team Facebook group, so you can chat to your fellow runners.

What supporters say

The Royal Parks Half Marathon was a great event - well organised, a beautiful course and fantastic support from spectators. I was proud to run it for Breast Cancer Now in memory of a friend of mine.

Simon

The support on the day is amazing and inspiring and it's a fantastic event, taking in many of the most famous sights in London. The Breast Cancer Now team did a fantastic job getting me prepared and my small group of supporters found the best places to cheer me on. Thanks for a great day and I hope that the sponsorship money raised helps all those now and in the future to beat this disease.
