RUN THE HALF MARATHON

Love running? Love the Parks? Could you run in this year’s Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon or Ultra Marathon on Sunday 6 October as part of our team of sporty supporters?

Our fabulous runners help support vital projects across London's eight amazing Royal Parks to keep them extraordinary for everyone to enjoy, now and in the future.

Becoming a Squirrel is easy - we ask all our runners to pay a £50 registration fee to secure your place on the start line, we then ask you pledge to raise £300 in sponsorship

You can pay your £50 registration fee a few ways:

Run with your buddy

If you use your charms and encourage a friend to join Team Squirrel and crack the Half Marathon with you, each paying the £50 registration fee, we will set a joint target of £450 to raise between you - it's much more fun to run together, and fundraise together too!

All you need to do is book you both into Team Squirrel as above and email teamsquirrel@royalparksfoundation.org to let us know you’re running and fundraising with your buddy.

If you have any questions please drop Sara a line at teamsquirrel@royalparksfoundation.org or 0207 036 8049.

 What we offer our runners

  • A guaranteed race place without the suspense of the public ballot
  • A welcome pack with lots of support and advice from experienced fundraisers to help you hit your fundraising target
  • Access to our Squirrel tent on race day with much needed refreshment, exclusive goody bag, a big well done and thank you!
  • Prizes for the fastest Team Squirrel runners (Scampering Champ and Champ-ess) and the most successful fundraiser (Stashiest Squirrel) 
  • A top quality sustainable bamboo running vest featuring Chester Squirrel, our cheeky mascot
  • Dedicated contact with our Team Squirrel Captain to keep you motivated and get you ready for race day
  • The chance to run alongside Chester Squirrel (just steer clear of his bushy tail!)
  • Regular updates about the projects we’re doing and our vision for future generations

RUN THE 50K ULTRA

If you love running and love the Parks, you’ll love this 50km race which takes in 5 of London’s magical Royal Parks.  Join Team Squirrel and run the Royal Parks Foundation Ultra Marathon and get ready to take on your nuttiest charity challenge to date.

Taking place on Sunday 6 October 2013, and starting alongside our very own Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon, this stunning route weaves through Royal Parks, along the river Thames and past many of London’s world-famous landmarks.

How to sign up

Becoming an Ultra Squirrel runner is easy - we ask all our runners to pay a £60 registration fee to secure your place on the start line, we then ask you pledge to stash £600 in sponsorship.

You can pay your £60 registration fee a couple of ways:

Run with your buddy

An Ultra Marathon is a long way so Chester the Squirrel always prefers running with his friends, it really keeps him motivated with a bit of healthy competition, so he loves our "Run with your buddy" offer!

If you use your charms and encourage a friend to join Team Squirrel and crack the Ultra Marathon with you, each paying the £60 registration fee, we will set a joint target of £1000 to raise between you - it's much more fun to run together, and fundraise together too!

All you need to do is book you both into Team Squirrel as above and email teamsquirrel@royalparksfoundation.org to let us know you’re running and fundraising with your buddy.

If you have any questions please drop Sara a line at teamsquirrel@royalparksfoundation.org or 0207 036 8049.
