Participants with disabilities
We offer people of all abilities the opportunity to take part in landmark race with a field of 16,000 runners in a festival atmosphere. If you have a disability, here’s how to enter and what to do if you have any questions or concerns about joining us on race day
Over successive years we’ve made some necessary adjustments to facilitate wheelchair users on the course. We’re delighted that on the back of this, we have a limited number of wheelchair places available in the 2023 Royal Parks Half
To be eligible to participate you must take part in a self-propelled day chair* - handcycles, racing wheelchairs, walking frames/crutches and any motorised wheelchairs are not permitted.
*Please note, participants in wheelchairs that require a guide runner to push are allowed.
Before entering, please ensure you contact us to let us know that you want to participate as a wheelchair user. If you wish to take part for one of our charity partners, we must have received a request from your charity of choice before the place is confirmed.
Participants who need assistance
If you’re a visually impaired runner or your disability and/or medical condition means that you require an assistant, please contact us detailing your request and the reasons for it. We’ll offer a free assistant race place to every eligible participant. If you’re unable to take part in the Royal Parks Half Marathon, the place for your assistant runner will be withdrawn.
How do I enter?
You can enter the Royal Parks Half Marathon through the public ballot, by applying for a charity place, or through purchasing a corporate place.
