During this time, we are monitoring the status of any changes to event dates, and are updating our website to reflect these as regularly as we can. We’ll keep in touch with all fundraisers who register here for a Unicef place with any updates, and would also recommend keeping an eye on the event organiser’s website for the most up to date information on the event. From all of us in the fundraising team here at Unicef, thank you for your continued support.
Covid-19 is at the front of all our minds. With the help of supporters like you, Unicef are providing gloves, masks and other vital supplies to protect children and families. Through the pandemic, we will still continue to be there for children with life-saving food, vaccines, clean water and protection from wars. Your support means we are able to continue our vital work, thank you.
Why choose the Royal Parks Half Marathon?
The Royal Parks Half Marathon is one of the most scenic city runs in the world and a great way to see London’s world-famous landmarks. It also passes through four of London’s eight Royal Parks, including Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.
Why run it for 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 enough life-saving nutritious food to cure 9 children from malnutrition?

I’m not saying it was easy. This was my first half marathon, so at some points the race was really challenging.
Fortunately Unicef and all the other charities supported the runners with joy and kept me going until the end!
I was born in Venezuela, where I had a beautiful and happy childhood, I support Unicef because I know this wasn’t everyone’s case.
