Join Team Squirrel and conker this stunning 13.1 mile route taking in four of London’s Royal Parks. To secure your place simply pay your £50 registration fee and pledge to raise a minimum of £350 to support The Royal Parks.

Our eight Royal Parks are one of Britain’s greatest national treasures, covering 5,000 acres of green space to more than 77 million visitors a year - from local Londoners to visitors from around the world. Your fundraising will help preserve the Royal Parks’ fascinating and culturally important heritage, and aid in the protection of its vulnerable wildlife. They provide essential green space for people to use, improving physical and mental wellbeing and discovering the natural world. Help us keep the Royal Parks beautiful and bursting with life for all to enjoy, for today and future generations!

What you will get from us

We like to look after our super-squirrels, giving you the VIP treatment you deserve! You’ll be provided with…

  • A guaranteed race place without the suspense of the public ballot
  • A welcome pack with support and advice from experienced fundraisers to help you hit your fundraising target, along with tips on training for your challenge
  • A top quality sustainable bamboo running vest
  • Access to our exclusive Team Squirrel Marquee on race day with much needed refreshments, activities for your supporters, a massage, a big well done and thank you!
  • An exclusive goody bag on race day
  • Dedicated contact with Murielle, our Team Squirrel Captain, to keep you motivated and get you ready for race day
  • The chance to run alongside Chester Squirrel (just steer clear of his bushy tail!)

Please note that our places are in high demand and we therefore ask all runners to demonstrate their commitment to fundraising by raising at least £100 by 2 July. Failure to do so could result in loss of your Team Squirrel place. (We’re not ogres, so if you have joined the team very close to this date, or have extenuating circumstances, we will discuss an alternative deadline date with you!)
