A message from the Royal Parks Half organisers on COVID-19, updated January 2021:

“We are hopeful that enough progress will have been made so that we can safely accommodate 16,000 runners on our course come race day. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and keep you updated with our planning. Much of which will focus on how we deliver a safe event in the context of all necessary Covid-19 guidelines and precautions.”

If you register for a Back Up place and the October 2021 event is cancelled, we guarantee that we will either roll over your place to the 2022 event or offer you a refund.
