Royal Parks is one of the most beautiful events on the running calendar. You'll conquer 13.1 miles of stunning scenery on closed roads, visiting the Capitals iconic landmarks along the way. The event sends its runners through four of London's famous Royal Parks - Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, St James's Park and Green Park

Key Event Info:

  • Fast and flat course - great event for both experienced and first-time half marathon runners.
  • A sustainable event with over 66% waste from the event being recycled.
  • A unique view of some of the most beautiful parks in the UK.
  • All runners receive a wonderful canvas bag and unique wooden medal.
  • A food festival featuring tastes from all over the world.

This beautiful Autumnal challenge takes place in October, which is also Baby Loss Awareness Month. It's a significant time to 'run to remember' and you'll be helping us to prevent stillbirth too.

Royal Parks are committed to making this event as sustainable as possible. You'll be joining others to #RunGreen this year, with no plastic bottles, water points to refill and will even receive a race shirt made from bamboo and recycled bottles.

I'd like a guaranteed place:

Then welcome to team Kicks Count! If you take on one of our guaranteed places, you'll be completing a fantastic personal challenge.

To secure your place, we simply ask for your commitment to raise £350 to help us save babies' lives. £350 is an incredible amount of money for a small charity - we could supply eight maternity waiting rooms with an awareness-raising banner or provide 17 families with a supportive gift bundle via our Finding a Rainbow Project

In return for your fantastic support, we will support you every step of the way - helping you reach your fundraising target and the finish line.

  • Tips and ideas to kick start and support your fundraising efforts
  • Access to our brand new Strava group
  • A professional Kicks Count running top
  • Fundraising and event resources like balloons and collection tins.
  • Support and advice from a dedicated member of the Kicks Count team, whenever you need.

I have a place in the ballot:

If you were lucky enough to secure a ballot place we would love to welcome you to the team too! Register with us and we can send you a free running vest and anything else you need. As the charity hasn't paid for your place, you won't have to raise a minimum amount of sponsorship, just raise what you can!

Use your ballot place to save babies lives today.

“I enjoyed every step (well except mile 11!) It was such a brilliant run but probably one of the hardest things I've ever done. The support was amazing. I loved running down the mall towards Buckingham Palace at mile 5!" - Rachel
