Race Day: 11 April 2021


We are conscious that the postponement of the 2020 edition of the Royal Parks Half is disappointing, albeit not unexpected news. To help, we have compiled a list of questions and answers which we hope will provide some clarity around the situation. If you have any further questions which are not addressed below, please do not hesitate to contact us at: info@royalparkshalf.com. We anticipate this being a busy period, so please bear with us and we will reply within 5 working days.

When is the registration deadline?

In order to secure your place, you must complete your registration by midnight on the  21 August 2020.

If you have not completed your registration by this date, you will not be able to take part.

Keywords: registration, deadline.

What is the age limit?

You must be at least 17 years old on Sunday 11 October 2020 (race day) to take part.

What is an iTaB?

An iTaB is a small metal plate that will be engraved with your name and finish time. This will then be posted out to you 2 weeks after the event and can be stuck onto a designated space on the back of your medal. iTaBs cost £8. If you would like to order an iTaB, please log in online to your personal profile.

Keywords: itab, medal

Do you have a public place waiting list?

Unfortunately we do not have a waiting list for public places. However, you can get a place by running for charity or entering a corporate team.

Keywords: waiting, list, charity, corporate, take, part.

Can I pass my place onto someone else?

Unfortunately you CANNOT pass your place onto someone else. Each place in the race is unique and at registration you will provide medical information and emergency contact details that are specific to you. If you pass on your race number you could be endangering that person as we would have no information on them should there be an accident where medical attention was required.

Keywords: transfer, defer, deferral.

I’m injured and can’t run, can I have a refund?

Unfortunately we cannot offer any refunds or transfer places to next year. There are a large number of costs involved in staging an event of this scale, such as paying for staffing, infrastructure, road closures and medical cover, all of which aren’t recoverable.

Keywords: injury, injured, refund, defer, deferral, transfer, cancel.
