Important event update

Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, the decision has been made by the event organisers to postpone this year’s race to 11 April 2021 for the safety and wellbeing of all participants and spectators.

If you got your 2020 place through Royal Parks Half Marathon ballot, they have moved your registration to this new date and will be in touch soon with further details. In the meantime, we wanted to confirm that your place is still valid and we’re looking forward to seeing you there.

Is your 2020 place a charity place with us at Cancer Research UK?

If yes and you’re unable to make the new date and would like to defer your place to October 2021, you will need to let us know by 17 July 2020. You can do this by emailing us at supporter.services@cancer.org.uk or calling 0300 123 5461.

If you can't make either dates and would like a refund, please contact us still by 17 July 2020 to confirm this.

Thank you so much for your continued support to help us beat cancer.
