royal parks half marathon 2021

The Royal Parks Half Marathon will be taking place virtually on Sunday 11th April 2021 with what organisers are calling an ‘unparalleled digital experience’.

The Royal Parks Half Marathon was created back in 2008 and is the first and only half marathon of its kind. The spectacular route takes participants through the heart of London, passing a host of the capital’s famous landmarks on closed roads, whilst also winding its way through four of eight of London’s Royal Parks.

However, due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, this April’s race has been replaced with an at-home event that encourages those taking part to run the race distance in their local area.

The unique digital experience will be celebrating the green spaces to be found throughout the UK, with the hashtag and phrase #RunGreen Without Limits being used widely to spread the word about the event.

Naturally, we think it’s brilliant that the race will be championing the great outdoors and we’re thrilled that both of our original participants, Alice Hall and Sally Reffold, will be taking part in the virtual event.

They’ve also been joined by Helen Whalley, who will be getting involved by striding the streets of her nearby neighbourhood too.

All of them have now begun fundraising, so please show your support and help them to reach their targets by giving whatever you can.
