Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon

The Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon takes place each October, starting and finishing in the stunning Hyde Park. Runners take part in the 13.1 mile route through Central London, taking in the spectacular sites of the capital and the beautiful Royal Parks.

As well as all of the fantastic runners that take part, thousands of spectators also join us for the Food & Fitness Festival to cheer on their friends and family and share this amazing day.

  • Over £25m raised for great causes
  • 16,000 runners
  • 4 Royal Parks
  • 377 charities
  • 1 amazing experience

The 2016 race will take place on Sunday 9 October.

We, like all of our runners, want to see the best of London’s city and parks, so our fantastic event goes beyond just running 13.1 miles, as we design the day so that spectators have as much fun as the runners themselves.

“I absolutely love this event, this is the second time I've done the Royal Parks Half and I will certainly be returning next year, it's such a beautiful run, the atmosphere is amazing, it's a very eco-friendly event and even the medals are unique and gorgeous. Thank you so much for a wonderful time.” Yasmin, runner 2015

“The whole experience was excellent.  So lucky with the weather and so the parks looked beautiful.  The most important for me, though, was the atmosphere of goodwill amongst the runners, supporters and volunteers.” Philippa, runner 2015

"This was the best organised and the most uplifting and enjoyable run I have done. Thank you for such a wonderful experience and I cannot wait to enter for 2016!" - Becky, runner 2015
