Be a half marathon hero for Team Chestnut in 2021!

Not only do you get to run through some of the most beautiful green space London has to offer, you’ll do it to the backdrop of some of the capital’s world famous landmarks – all on closed roads.

The Royal Parks Half Marathon takes in four of London’s eight Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.

Make a difference with Team Chestnut

Use your place to run for Team Chestnut and help families during this pandemic, who are coping with caring for their poorly children at this stressful time, take a well-earned break and make isolated families feel less alone.

Keeping you COVID safe

The organisers will have more details about their COVID safety measures as the event gets closer. We’ll look to share them here as we know more, but for now keep an eye on the Royal Parks website for the latest information.
