Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon


13 October 2019
Registration fee: £25
Minimum sponsorship: £350
Starting and finishing in Hyde Park

A stunning run through four of London’s eight Royal Parks

The Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon takes place each October, starting and finishing in the stunning Hyde Park. Over 16,000 runners take part in the 13.1 mile route, showcasing the iconic sights of London through four Royal Parks (Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, St James’s Park, and The Green Park) and past some of the capital’s most historic landmarks, including Buckingham Palace, Horse Guards Parade and the Royal Albert Hall. Although undulating in parts, the course is not hilly and is great for either experienced or first time half marathon runners.

Our charity places have now closed

Have your own place?

If you’re lucky enough to get your own place in the event we’d love to have you run as part of team #Run4StC. You can still enjoy all of the benefits of being a part of our team, without having a minimum sponsorship target.
