Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances we have taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Run Crystal Palace event.

As a charity it is essential that we are fully confident that all of our events will provide us with the maximum return on investment whilst offering an enjoyable experience for the participant.

For further information email events@mencap.org.uk.


About the event

Choose your distance and pick your pace, with 5k, 2.5k and 1k options, you can either aim for a personal best, or take your time and enjoy the sights and sounds of one of London's most historic parks.

The event will be taking place in Crystal Palace Park, Thicket Road, London, SE19 2GA.

The route is on tarmac paths and is suitable for all age and fitness levels to run, jog or walk.

Children can sign up for just £5, and if you have a disability your support worker or personal assistant can run for free - just email us to sign them up! If you use a wheelchair user, give us a call as we do have some wheelchair places available.

What are you waiting for? Put on your trainers and pound the pavements to help us support people with learning disability to live the lives they choose.

As part of Team Mencap, you'll receive:

  • top-notch fundraising support from the Mencap events team
  • regular updates about the race and Mencap
  • big cheers on race day
  • a Mencap t-shirt to run in
  • a finishers medal to wear with pride when you cross the finish line!
