Can you join our cheer squad and help us get our group of runners around this half marathon route? Join other spectators near mile 12 from 10am at The Royal Parks Half Marathon this Sunday. The race starts at 9am until approximately lunch time and the park will be busy, there is even a food and drink festival area which you can visit. After the race, Silver Line staff will be in the festival area (In the S area) greeting runners after they pass the finish line. Once you’ve had enough of cheering please do come along and say hi! It would be great to see you there.

Contact the fundraising team: if you would like to help us and we can send you a t-shirt to wear on the day.


This scenic half marathon takes on London in all its Autumnal glory! Starting and finishing in Hyde Park, this route takes in four of London’s Royal Parks and all on closed roads. During the 13.1-mile course you will pass historic landmarks such as Buckingham Palace and the Royal Albert Hall on a flat route perfect for regular and first-time half marathon runners. This event organisers have announced their commitment to go plastic free on the course by 2020.

This year they have introduced two water stations with compostable cups and reduced the size of plastic water bottles from 330ml to 250ml. Runners will also receive a 500ml carton of water at the end of the race instead of a plastic bottle.  

Through these changes, they are eliminating 100,000 plastic bottles from the course and festival area. To tie in with this sustainability plan, we are pleased to give a special reusable drinking bottle made from 100% recyclable plastic kindly donated by Buypromoproducts to every person who joins our 2019 team.

This is one of the UK’s most popular half marathons and to get a place all you have to do is agree to fundraise at least £200. The fundraising team will be on hand to help you all the way.  If you were successful in getting a place in the ballot, please make sure you also contact us so you can join #TeamSilverLine.
