What is the guaranteed place initiative?
This initiative was set up to offer people who took part in the April 2021 edition of the Royal Parks Half a guaranteed place in a future event as a thank you for supporting the event and/or one of our charity partners. Anyone who is eligible for a place has been contacted via email with instructions on how to claim their place. Eligible participants will need to pay the 2020 public entry fee of £59 to confirm their place on the start line.
How do I know if I've qualified for a guaranteed place?
We will be contacting all eligible runners via email to let them know what they need to do to secure their place. If you think you are eligible, please check your inbox including spam and junk folders. If you have not received an email by 11:59pm on Thursday 6 May 2021 and think that you should have, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and the team will be happy to help you.
How do I claim my guaranteed place in the October 2021 race?
If you are eligible for a guaranteed place in the October 2021 race on Sunday 10 October, then you should have received an email inviting you to register and pay for your place. Please check your email inbox, including your spam and junk folders, as you will need to act quickly to secure your place. The deadline for claiming your place is 5pm on Friday 14th May 2021.
PLEASE NOTE: if you do not complete your registration before the deadline, you will NOT be able to claim your place at a later date or defer your place to a future year.
How do I claim my guaranteed place in the October 2022 race?
The October 2022 race will provisionally take place on Sunday 9 October. If you are eligible for a guaranteed place, you should have received an email with information on next steps. We will not be in contact with eligible runners with more information about their place until much closer to the event.
Can I change what year I'd like to claim my guaranteed place?
Unfortunately, we can no longer process any changes to your guaranteed place.
What happens if I do not complete my registration before the deadline for the October 2021 race?
If you do not complete your registration before the deadline of 5pm on Friday 14 May 2021 you will lose your place in the event. You will NOT be able to claim your place at a later date, NOR will you be able to defer your place.
