Welcome to the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon. The race this year will take place on Sunday 11 October 2015


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 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.
