All public places cost £48. When you enter the ballot, you can choose to either pay now, or to pay later when you know if you’ve secured a place in the ballot.

Choose to pay now

If you pay now, you will be entered into the ballot. If successful, you’ll have until Friday 14 March to complete your online registration and secure your place. You may be entered into a ‘second chance draw’ if unsuccessful in the ballot (and if there are unclaimed places available). You are also kindly agreeing to donate your race fee to the Royal Parks Foundation if you aren’t successful in the ballot, or if you do not take up a place offered. 

Benefits of paying now: 

  1. If you pay now but don’t secure a place in the public ballot, we will enter you into a ’second-chance draw’, for any places not claimed in the first ballot
  2. If you pay now, but don’t secure a place in either the ballot or the ’second chance draw’, we’ll send a 2014 edition Royal Parks Foundation Hoodie (worth £50) as a thank you for your donation to the Royal Parks Foundation
  3. You will be automatically entered into a Prize Draw (if you correctly answer the question on the registration form) for a chance to win tickets for 4 people, plus hotel, to the Charity Preview Night of Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park in November 2014

Choose to pay later

If you choose to pay later, you will be entered into the ballot. If you secure a place in the ballot draw, you will be prompted on Friday 7 March to pay the £48 entry fee (BEFORE 5pm Friday 14 March 2014) when you’re completing your registration.
