Royal Parks Half Marathon 2021

Show the world that humanity can win in the Royal Parks Half Marathon

Join our team of human rights heroes in the Royal Parks Half Marathon. The stunning 13.1 mile route takes in the capital’s world-famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of London’s eight Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.

As part of #TeamHumanity you will receive the very best support, including:

  • A branded Refugee Action running vest
  • Access to fundraising resources, including our fundraising guide, branded bunting, stickers and collection tins
  • Expert fundraising advice and support from our friendly team
  • The most enthusiastic cheer squad on the course

Runners are asked to raise a minimum £350 sponsorship, and there is a £35 fee to register.

With every mile that you run, you will be changing the lives of people seeking safety here in the UK. At Refugee Action, we’re determined to ensure that Britain is a country that truly welcomes refugees. By taking on this challenge, you will be getting us one step closer to that reality.

Refugee Action has been welcoming refugees with open arms since 1981. We support people who have been forced from their homes by war and persecution. Ordinary people who have been uprooted, and who just want a safe place to call home. By running for us, you will be giving refugees and people searching for safety hope for the future.
