London's Royal Parks are yours for the taking this October. You'll join 16,000 other runners on the start-line at the UK's most beautiful half marathon.
Your Royal Parks Half experience
Brand new for 2021 and for the first time ever, the route will start on one of the most iconic roads in the world - The Mall. From there, you'll follow a gorgeous route through 4 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.
David, Team Scope runner Royal Parks 2018
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 Royal Parks Half Marathon welcomes the use of manually propelled wheelchairs, but places are limited and allocated on a first come first served basis. All wheelchair entrants are started at the back of their wave.
Accompanying assistants can be facilitated if required.
If the Royal Parks Half Marathon is unable to go ahead in October and we've already confirmed your place on #TeamScope, we will ensure your place is rolled over to a future year.

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.
