Run the Royal Parks Half Marathon!

Get a place in this iconic event with us

Join the Together We Learn running team at the Royal Parks half marathon this October 2023. The incredible central london running event takes in some of the capital’s world-famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of London’s Royal Parks – Hyde Park, Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.

The mostly flat, undulating route makes the race popular for those taking part for the first time, while also providing seasoned runners with the opportunity to best their record.

Race Day: Sunday 8th October 2023

Registration deadline: 25th August 2023

We ask runners to commit to raise £300 as a fundraising target for the Royal Parks Half Marathon places. This includes the cost of a place in the run, race day shirt and medal.

Funds raised from the event support our work to improve quality of, and access to, education for children in Ethiopia.

Through our projects, last year: 

  • 2,250 pupils benefitted from trained teachers
  • 482 students were sponsored to stay in education
  • 107 families received food parcels
  • 92 girls received reusable period packs

You can read more about our work in our latest Annual Report.

Over the past two years we have dealt with a number of extraordinary challenges with the global pandemic and conflict in northern Ethiopia. Funds raised from events like the Royal Parks Half Marathon enable us to respond quickly to the unexpected and support families when they need it most.

“Thank you for encouraging us to take part in our first half marathon. We’re both moving rather slowly today. Your support at Mile 11 really did make all the difference. A truly memorable event.” Jacks and Elliot, London

Our staff will support you with your fundraising and will be there, to cheer you on, on the day of the run.
