Race Day: 10 October 2021

If you are a charity

The Royal Parks Half Marathon was built and developed as a fundraising event. Each year we welcome over 500 charities to the Royal Parks, with 543 charities participating in 2021. Over 16,000 charity runners take to the course each October, fundraising for causes close to their hearts and in the last 13 years, the Royal Parks Half Marathon has raised over £50 million for vital causes around the UK. The unique central London course weaves through four of London's Royal Parks and past many of the Capital's iconic landmarks. It is the perfect course for those searching to complete their first half-marathon or those going for a personal best!


Charities sales are now closed for the 2021 race.


Virgin Money Giving are the official fundraising partner for the Royal Parks Half Marathon. Through Virgin Money Giving, 100% of your donations can go to your charity with Donor Covers Fee.  Virgin Money Giving will never make a profit from what they do, but do need to charge a small platform and processing payment fee. Giving donors the option to cover this fee means 100% of the donation then reaches your charity, making an even bigger impact to your cause. 

They provide support throughout the campaign for all charities, and regular communications to your fundraisers, including hints and tips to help them raise as much money as possible for you.
