Run the Half Marathon

Sunday 12 October

Becoming a Squirrel is easy - we ask all our runners to pay a £50 registration fee to secure your place on the start line, we then ask you pledge to raise £300 in sponsorship.

You can pay your £50 registration fee a couple of ways:

Run with your buddy

Team Squirrel runners with ChesterChester always enjoys running round the Parks with his friends, it really keeps him motivated with a bit of healthy competition, so he loves our "Run with your buddy" offer!

If you use your charms and encourage a friend to join Team Squirrel and crack the Half Marathon with you, each paying the £50 registration fee, we will set a joint target of £450 to raise between you - it's much more fun to run together, and fundraise together too!

All you need to do is book you both into Team Squirrel as above and email [email protected] to let us know you’re running and fundraising with your buddy.

If you have any questions please drop Marion a line at [email protected] or 0207 036 8055.
