The Royal Parks Half is London’s original half marathon, run on closed roads through four of the eight Royal Parks as well as being the greenest race of its kind in the UK.

The stunning 13.1-mile route showcases the iconic sights of London through four Royal Parks (Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, St James’s Park, and The Green Park) and past some of the capital’s most historic landmarks, including Buckingham Palace, Horse Guards Parade and the Royal Albert Hall.

If you are interested in joining our team in 2024, please first complete our short online application form, making sure to answer the questions as thoroughly as you can. If you have any questions about running and fundraising for African Promise please get in touch.


To secure your place with African Promise you would need to pay an entry deposit of £100. This is fully refundable only if you raise at least £500 (excluding Gift Aid and employer matching).

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.

All participants in the Royal Parks Half must be aged 18 or older on race day.
