About the challenge


Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the decision has been made by the event organisers to change the format of this event. The runners are now given the opportunity to complete this event in their local areas.

Date:  Sunday, 11 April 2021
Location: In your local area
Event distance: 13.1 miles
Fundraising target: £200 (registration fee £25)

The Royal Parks Half Marathon organisers have decided to replace the iconic London Half Marathon with a new event experience that you can take part in from your front door! We're encouraging runners to take on a 13.1 mile challenge in their local area on Sunday 11th April 2021. As a WWF runner you will receive our amazing race pack, incuding a WWF running top to wear on the day. You will also get a finishers medal, combined with an exciting digital experience designed to deliver the sights and sounds from the famous course.
As a special bonus all runners who take part in the race for WWF and achieve their fundraising target will be able to skip the Royal Parks ballot in 2022 and purchase a guaranteed place in the event.
