Take in the city centre and Royal Parks

This multi-award winning, environmentally conscious half marathon was founded in 2008. Well over a decade later, still takes in a beautiful route through closed roads in the centre of London and four of the famous Royal Parks.

Finishing in Hyde Park, the race winds through Green Park, St James's Park and Kensington Gardens, taking in the sights of many of London's most famous landmarks in the stunning surroundings of the King's back gardens.

Why run the Royal Parks Half Marathon?

The flat route is perfect for beginners, and has become a favourite of many runners, especially when it's been their first Half Marathon.

The amazing sights of the capital mean that you'll never be short of something to look at as you run, and the change of scenery half way through as you enter Hyde Park is an amazing display of stunning autumnal colours.

All you need to know about the Royal Parks Half Marathon

The route will be revealed closer to the event date by Royal Parks, but you can expect to run through Green Park, St James' Park and Kensington Gardens in beautiful autumnal colours.
