Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon

Thanks to all applicants, our team is now full for this year’s Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon.

The stunning 13.1 mile route takes in 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.

Head 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.

Run for Wildlife

Around the world wildlife is fighting for survival, facing threats such as climate change, habitat loss, illegal wildlife trade and conflict with humans. We are losing incredible animals such as pangolins and rhinos, which are hunted and traded in their millions.  All funds raised from the Royal Parks Half Marathon will help us to care and conserve some of the most wonderful and endangered animals across the world.
