Fancy a new challenge to work towards? Kickstart your running by committing to a half marathon this year

A scurry of squirrels from all over the UK stormed central London on Monday in a bid to be the first to enter the ballot for the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon. The ballot opened on Monday at royalparkshalf.com and will stay open for entries until Wednesday 6 February.

The Royal Parks Half is an annual event and this year takes place on 6 October in Hyde Park, London. It's a great experience and runners can expect beautiful scenery, a great atmosphere and a fantastic food and fitness festival at the finish!

This year they've also increased the entry to a whopping 16,000, but places go quickly – so if you're keen don't delay, enter the ballot today!
