Race Day: 14 October 2018

WIN £250 contribution to your fundraising!

16 July 2018

One thing that makes the Royal Parks Half so special is our focus on charities. That’s why we’re excited to be launching the #WhyIRun campaign!

Every year we are continually inspired by the amazing people who run to raise thousands of pounds for causes close to their hearts. Since the race begin in 2008, you’ve raised over £36 million for nearly 1,000 charities. Now we want to hear from you! Tell us about why you are running this year’s #RoyalParksHalf and shout from the mountain top about the amazing cause you’re supporting through the race. Your video could end up winning the charity of your choice a £250 donation from Virgin Money Giving.

To join in the campaign, simply film a short video explaining why you are running this year’s #RoyalParksHalf and post it on social media using #WhyIRun and tagging @RoyalParksHalf and your respective charity. Finally, upload it to our platform here and you will be entered to win £250 towards your fundraising total. (You don’t have to be fundraising on the VMG platform to be eligible.)

To get inspired, follow along on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. The winner of the donation will be announced in September. Come join in on the fun, and share #WhyIRun! We can’t wait to hear your story.
