Do you have a public place waiting list?

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.

Can I run for a charity?

There are many charities taking part in the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon and we would encourage you to contact one close to your heart. A list of charities participating in this year's race can soon be found on the website. Please contact them directly to obtain your place with them.

Is this a fundraising event?

Yes, all runners are asked to combine their running with raising much needed money for a charity of their choice. Please note that the Royal Parks Foundation is a small charity itself - any profit made from this event goes to support the vital works within The Royal Parks.
