Royal Parks Half Marathon

Give refugees the welcome they deserve 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 Team Refugee Action, you will receive the very best support, including:

  • A branded Refugee Action running vest or t-shirt
  • Expert fundraising advice and support from our friendly team
  • An insight into the work your fundraising is making happen
  • Access to fundraising resources, including our fundraising guide, branded bunting and stickers.

Runners are asked to raise a minimum £400 sponsorship, and there is a £20 fee to register.

 

Why fundraise for Refugee Action?

Refugee Action has been welcoming refugees with open arms since 1981. We exist to support refugees and people seeking asylum to rebuild their lives in the UK. Every day, our frontline staff are helping people to escape homelessness, find work and build a new life for themselves. And our campaigns are fighting for a fairer future for refugees, challenging laws and systems that stop refugees and people seeking asylum from thriving.

This work is only possible because of people like you. With every mile that you run, you will be changing the lives of people seeking safety here in the UK. By taking on this challenge, you are giving refugees hope for the future.
