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 the sights of London from a different perspective.
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 a month’s supply of life-saving peanut paste to bring 16 malnourished children back to health?
Got your own place?
We have filled all of our charity places for 2018, but if you’ve already got your own place through the public ballot in the Royal Parks Half Marathon, we’d love for you to fundraise for us. There is no minimum fundraising commitment; we would only ask you to raise what you can.

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.
