Frequently asked questions

We are a small charity with limited resources but we would give you as much support with your fundraising as we can, including help with setting up a fundraising page and promoting your fundraising. As a member of Team AP you would receive a free running vest or t-shirt to wear on the day and during your training. And, of course, the satisfying and rewarding feeling that your efforts are helping thousands of disadvantaged school children in Kenya.

Although undulating in parts, the Royal Parks Half course is not hilly and is great for either experienced or first time half marathon runners. Unfortunately we cannot provide advice or guidance on training but we would recommend you see a doctor and get a full health check before embarking on training for a run of this distance.
