Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon – the return of the red squirrel

The press release from the Royal Parks team is as follows:

Sara Lom, Chief Executive of the Royal Parks Foundation, the charity behind the race, says “The Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon races through four of London’s amazing Royal Parks, and has raised more than £15million for around 400 charities all over the UK since it began in 2008.

“This year’s field is set to be the largest ever with 16,000 runners from around Britain and more than 30 countries across the world taking part. Signing up will be the perfect boost to your New Year’s fitness resolution.”
