Royal Parks Half Marathon

Run with Team Unicef and help keep children safe

Home > Half marathons > Royal Parks Half Marathon

The Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon is one of the most scenic city runs in the world and a great way to see the sights of London from a different perspective.

Why run with Team Unicef?

Your fundraising through the Royal Parks Half Marathon can make a huge difference for children. With your support, Unicef can protect millions of vulnerable children around the world. Did you know that £400 in sponsorship could provide a month’s supply of life-saving peanut paste to bring 17 malnourished children back to health?

“The best moment for me whilst running the half marathon was coming up to mile 7 and seeing (& hearing) all the Unicef supporters. When I passed them again a few miles later getting about 30 high fives as I ran past gave me the boost I needed to finish the run with a big smile on my face! I thought it would be a one off but I enjoyed it so much I’m considering running the Royal Parks Half again this year.”
