Royal Parks Half marathon takes advantage of all this space to offer a race that gives you a great experience. This race gives you a special experience of London, with road closures that mean you can run past some of the famous landmarks and race through four of London’s most famous Royal Parks -   Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.

Often, at this time of year, the trees are starting to change colour and so you have a spectacular display from nature to help you on your way. 

If you have applied for a ballot place in this event and would like to fundraise for the Family Holiday Charity, please email our team.
