Information for the 2018 Public Ballot

04 January 2018

Exciting announcement.

Set your alarm, the public ballot for the 2018 Royal Parks Half Marathon will be open on Tuesday 30 January 2018. The online entry system will remain open until 5pm on Wednesday 7 February 2018, and your chances remain the same no matter when you register within this timeframe.

So don’t miss out.

For more information on how our ballot for public places works please take a look at our handy diagram below. 

When you get to the online registration you will be given the option to pay upfront or to continue without paying. If you decide to pay upfront, you will automatically get entered into a second round draw for any places that remain unallocated. The choice is yours.

Either way we hope to see you later in the year. For more information, please don’t hesitate to contact us at
