I am very sorry to report that the post I wrote this morning after the launch of the ballot for the Royal Parks Foundation half marathon and ultra were deleted by the company that hosts this website. I am going to try to rewrite the post but in the mean time, here are the details for entering.
This morning I went to the launch of the Royal Parks Foundation half marathon ballot. You can register for the ballot here: www.royalparkshalf.com and there is also an ultra, the details for which are here: www.royalparksultra.com
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.”
Super-fit squirrels looking for an even longer distance challenge can sign up today for the Royal Parks Foundation Ultra, a 50k ultra marathon, partnered with Scope: www.royalparksultra.com
