Join the RVC Animal Care Trust at the Royal Parks Half Marathon and raise money to improve animal health and care!

Whether this is your first challenge or you’re a seasoned runner, our team at the Animal Care Trust will be with you every step of the way. 

The Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon starts and finishes in the stunning Hyde Park then takes in the spectacular sites of the capital and other beautiful Royal Parks on the 13.1 mile route.

Date: Sunday 11th April 2021
Location: London

All Animal Care Trust runners in the Royal Parks Half Marathon will receive an Animal Care Trust running vest, a fundraising pack full of hints and tips, newsletters to keep you up to date with our fundraising news and activities, and as much help as you need to help you reach your fundraising target. We'll provide cheer sticks and other items for your friends and family to support you on the journey round, and you'll also receive an invitation to our Donor Day to see exactly what all of your hard work goes towards.



"It was great to have the ACT team to liaise with regarding fundraising throughout my half marathon journey and their updates and different stories about animals the RVC had helped kept me motivated through my training!"
Mark, 2018 Team ACT member
