Royal Parks Half Marathon


The Route

Starting and finishing in Hyde Park, the scenic 13.1 mile route takes you through four of London’s eight Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens. Covering the heart of the capital, you will pass famous landmarks including Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and the London Eye.

The course itself is fast and flat making it suitable for all abilities – for beginners whose key objective is to complete the course, to more regular long-distance event runners, looking to beat their personal best time.
