Royal Parks Half Marathon

** UPDATE **

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic, the Royal Parks Half Marathon 2020 has been postponed to 13 April 2021. This means that there will be two Royal Parks Half events in one calendar year, with the 2021 race taking place on Sunday 10 October as traditionally planned. NASS still has charity places for the Royal Parks Half, so if you would like to run for NASS, you can get in touch with us at

More details on the Royal Parks Half can be found on their website.


The Royal Parks Half Marathon is a run to remember. Taking in some of London’s world-famous landmarks and four of the capital’s eight Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens, this amazing experience is the perfect opportunity for you to run for NASS.
