Run for #teamrafa at the Royal Parks Half Marathon and raise vital funds that help us to continue supporting the RAF family.
Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, the decision has been made by the event organisers to postpone this year’s race from 11th October to 11 April 2021 for the safety and wellbeing of all participants and spectators.
If you secured your 2020 place through Royal Parks Half Marathon ballot, they have moved your registration to this new date and will be in touch soon with further details. In the meantime, we wanted to confirm that your place is still valid and we’re looking forward to seeing you there.
Take in the capital’s world-famous landmarks
On your 13.1 mile journey you’ll witness some of the greatest sights London has to offer, as you travel on closed roads and four of London’s eight Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.
This amazing experience was created in 2008 and is the first and only one of its kind. The event goes beyond just running the distance, the day is designed so that spectators have as much fun as the runners themselves. There is a wide range of fun, sporting and creative activities for the whole family to try, as well as a tempting food market plus live music and entertainment.
A support team that is with you every step of the way
Raise funds for us with your run and you’ll be part of #teamrafa. We’ll be behind you every step of the way. Everyone who runs for us will receive an RAF Association running top, which you can wear with pride on the day itself.
We’ll also send you a pack in the post which is full of tips to help you hit your sponsorship targets.
Shout about your sponsors
We are so grateful to everyone who will be sponsoring you to run. Every bit of funding we receive is vital to keeping our services running. Whenever anyone sponsors you, give them a huge thanks on social media and encourage your other friends to think about donating. You can also link your fundraising page to our dedicated JustGiving page so your sponsors can see exactly how they’ll be helping us.
All the money you raise from running will support important projects funded by the RAF Association, including training befrienders to help lonely and vulnerable veterans.
