Join #TeamYM with a charity place

We have now filled all of our places for the Royal Parks Half Marathon 2024. Any new applications will be put forward for the race in 2025.

Apply using the application form below, and we'll get back to you.

Less gruelling than a full marathon (but an incredible achievement nonetheless!) a half marathon is a great distance both for first-time endurance racers and experienced runners.

Enthusiastic crowds will cheer you along the way as you race through four of the capital's stunning royal parks, with some of the most exciting and scenic locations London has to offer.

Already got a place for 2024?

If you have been lucky enough to secure a ballot place in the race you can still be on #TeamYM! There’s no extra registration fee, and no minimum sponsorship target.

Just get in touch with our events team and we’ll provide you with everything you’ll need to support YoungMinds.

As a member of #TeamYM you’ll receive:

  • a bright and cheerful YoungMinds running vest to wear on training runs and on the big day itself
  • personalised stewardship from our friendly events team offering fundraising tips, training advice, and resources
