About the event

London's Royal Parks are yours for the taking this October at the UK's most beautiful half marathon. You'll join 16,000 other runners on the start-line this Autumn. Registrations close on 18th August so don't delay!

Starting and ending in Hyde Park, you'll follow a gorgeous route through four of London's leafy royal parks. You can also get some sight-seeing done as you pass some of London's most famous landmarks including Buckingham Palace, the Royal Albert Hall and Trafalgar Square. 

What you'll get on Team Scope

  • Free technical running vest to help you look the part

  • Expert fundraising support from our Scope Events Team to make reaching the fundraising target easy and fun

  • Training plans to suit your level so you can train your way to half marathon success

  • The loudest cheers on the course from our Scope cheer squads on the day

  • A warm welcome and free refreshments at our charity marquee in the festival village once you've crossed the finish line

I must say the Royal Parks Half is one of the best races I've ever done. Thanks to all at Scope for the amazing support and brilliant organisation!

The difference you can make

By signing up to the Royal Parks Half with Scope, you'll be raising vital funds to help us end inequality for disabled people.

We know that nearly half of disabled people feel excluded from society. Scope works tirelessly to campaign for change so that disabled people and their families can enjoy equality and fairness in their everyday lives.

£65 could pay for one week of support for a disabled person to access our Starting Line service;a pre-employment training programme for disabled people at the start of the journey into work.

£280 could enable a disabled volunteer to inspire 40 school students to be positive about disability at a Role Models session.

£450 could cover the cost of 50 phone calls to the Scope Helpline, providing free, independent and impartial advice and support on issues that matter to disabled people and their families.

I can honestly say that I don’t think I could have coped had it not been for the helpline. They have given me so much time and support through all my difficulties and battles.
