Royal Bank of Canada

Corporate 13.1

Your company’s chosen team will race for themselves but also for team glory in three different categories, adding another layer to the excitement on race day.  

The Royal Bank of Canada Corporate 13.1 is a race within a race, pitting company against company along the spectacular course of the Royal Parks Half.

It’s a chance for companies to foster a culture not just of hard work and dedication but also charitable giving and team success. All this is wrapped in an iconic event with a festival atmosphere as runners take to the closed roads of central London and through four magical Royal Parks to complete the Royal Parks Half. 

In previous years more than 2000 corporate runners from over 150 companies have competed to take home the coveted trophy in each discipline – Fastest Male, Fastest Female and Fastest Mixed Team. Companies can purchase as many guaranteed places (with a minimum of 2) and create sub-teams of 4-7 individuals to do battle – male, female or mixed. They can also make every step count by raising money for your preferred charity.

Corporate entry provides companies with:

Guaranteed place

among the 16 000 runners in this sell-out event

A platform to fundraise

for your company’s chosen charity

An opportunity to get the whole team involved

a half marathon is an epic challenge and the team’s efforts are worthy of support by their colleagues

A chance to race on a unique and iconic central London route

which includes four Royal Parks and many of London's most famous landmarks

Now, more than ever, it’s so important to find ways to actively promote  your company culture.

The Royal Bank of Canada Corporate 13.1 team event provides an amazing platform for:

Promoting physical and mental health.
Training for and taking part in challenge events can provide a huge boost to not just physical wellbeing but also mental health. Visibly helping to manage both the mental and physical wellbeing of teams and colleagues gives strength and vitality to an organisation through its people.

Bringing people together.
With more employees than ever working from home, connecting through shared experiences can make a huge difference. You can do this through training for the event as well as coming together on race day. 

Charitable fundraising
In the current climate, charitable organisations are working harder than ever to support those in need while facing huge challenges to fundraising. You can help them raise much-needed funding to continue their work while giving even more purpose to your team.
