Perfect running conditions, London at its best. I feel proud to have worn the St John Ambulance vest on the day! - Heather, runner

Already got a place in the Royal Parks Half Marathon?

If you already have your own place we would love to have you join our team. We don’t have a minimum sponsorship target, but any funds you can raise would be hugely appreciated. You'll receive the same support as a charity place runner.
