Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon

“Well organised, excellent atmosphere, great surrounding and support.” - 2015 Runner

Starting and finishing in Hyde Park, the scenic 13.1 mile route of the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon takes runners through four of London’s stunning Royal Parks – Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, The Green Park and St James’s Park – and past some of the capital’s most iconic landmarks including Buckingham Palace, The Houses of Parliament, The London Eye and The Royal Albert Hall.

The atmosphere at this iconic event is incredible – it’s definitely not to be missed!
