A stunning run through four of London’s eight Royal Parks
Starting and finishing in the stunning Hyde Park, the Royal Parks Half Marathon is one of the most exciting distance runs on offer in London. 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 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.
