The Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon takes place around some of London’s loveliest historic and natural landmarks. This stunning 13.1 mile route takes in the capital’s world-famous landmarks on closed roads including four of London’s Royal Parks - Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens – as well as views of Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Houses of Parliament and the Royal Albert Hall.

A great family day out giving you the opportunity to experience a festival atmosphere where the spectator’s experience is just as important as the runner’s.

The Royal Parks Foundation protects wildlife and conserves the natural environment, ensuring that this will be a sustainable and green event. The route takes in superb views of four Royal Parks; Hyde Park, St James, Green Park and Kensington Gardens – as well as Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament.
