The 2020 Royal Parks Half Marathon has been postponed until April 2021

This stunning central London Half Marathon takes in four of London's eight Royal Parks - Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James's Park and Kensington Gardens.

The event aims to make race day as green and sustainable as possible. 66% of all waste from the event is recycled and now avoids landfill sites, recognising the importance not only to protect the Parks but to reduce the impact on the wider world.

Celebrate London's green spaces with support from cheer stations and huge cheering crowds along the route. 

With creativity and support, fundraising can be fun and no sweat - you’ll sweat enough in training! Check out our fundraising ideas.

Why run for Independent Age?

More than 1 million older people say they are often or always lonely. As well as feeling cut off from friends and family, it can mean that when difficulties arise, they feel they have no one to turn to.

Your support can make such a difference for an older person, because thanks to our supporters, we can provide regular visits and telephone calls from one of our caring volunteers. We can also help with worries they might be facing whether they’re about finances, mobility, or other day-to-day issues, so they don’t have to cope with difficulties alone. Read more about how we help.

How will we support you?

By running for Independent Age, you will receive dedicated support from the moment you sign up all the way until you cross the finish line. We will provide you with:

  • An Independent Age technical running vest with your name on it
  • Fundraising support and tips to make reaching your target as easy as possible
  • Training plans and advice whether you’re a beginner, intermediate or advanced
  • Cheer points and support along the route on race day
