Royal Parks Half Marathon

Royal Parks Half has now announced the postponement of the 2020 Royal Parks Half Marathon, which was scheduled to take place on Sunday 11 October 2020. It will now take place on Sunday 11 April 2021.

We know how disappointing this will be for our runners who have trained so hard and would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has chosen to run for Battersea and raise vital funds for our dogs and cats. We’re incredibly grateful for your support. Battersea relies upon donations to raise the vital funds needed to keep our centres running, and now, more than ever, we need the continued support of the public to ensure we can continue to be here for every dog and cat.

The Royal Parks Half Marathon is a wonderfully scenic run set in four of London's eight Royal Parks - Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James's Park and Kensington Gardens.

It is a beautiful way to start Autumn as the leaves turn golden. However, if picturesque parks aren't quite enough for you, runners will also get a chance to see some of London’s most iconic landmarks, such as Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament and the Royal Albert Hall.

I want a charity place

We have a number of guaranteed places in the Royal Parks Half Marathon, so register today to run on behalf of Battersea.

Apply for a charity place

The non-refundable registration fee for a Battersea charity place is £30 (this is non-refundable and payable on confirmation of your place) and we ask that you pledge to raise a minimum of £350.

By taking part in the Royal Parks Half Marathon you'll be helping lost, abandoned and unwanted dogs and cats find the loving, new homes they need.

I already have my own place

If you have already secured your place for the Royal Parks Half Marathon, we would love for you to run on behalf of Battersea.

We don't ask you to raise a minimum amount if you've got your own place, but we will support you every step of the way to raise as much as possible.

Just let us know by completing the own place application form and we will be in touch.
