This October welcomes the return of the Royal Parks Half Marathon. The stunning 13.1 mile route passes the capital’s world-famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of London’s eight Royal Parks: Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.

“It is the marathon’s 10 year anniversary!”

We’re excited every year, but this year is extra exciting because it’s the 10th birthday of the Marathon! We will be celebrating #10yearsrunning of the Royal Parks Half Marathon and we’d love for you to join us in these celebrations.

Over 19,000 participants are expected and the race formally begins at 9:00am.

• More than 112,000 runners have crossed the finish line
• Over £30m has been raised for more than 750 charities
• 148 companies have raced in the Corporate 13.1mile race

This year promises to be another incredible Royal Parks Half Marathon. We hope to see you there.
