The 13.1 mile scenic route winds through four Royal Parks (Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, St James’s Park and The Green Park) in all their autumnal splendour. Runners also have the opportunity to take in magnificent views of the capital city and some of its historic landmarks including Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Houses of Parliament and the Royal Albert Hall.
In 2012, 12,500 runners came from across the UK and 35 countries around the world to race through the streets of London with 40,000 spectators and supporters cheering them on.
The race has won many awards, but one we’re particularly proud of was winning the Best Outdoor Event in September 2011 at the renowned Event Awards.
Our Half Marathon is particularly popular with celebrities. Ben Fogle, Nell McAndrew, Katherine Jenkins, Charlie Webster, Katie Piper, Jenni Falconer, Gordon and Tana Ramsay, Tessa Sanderson, James Cracknell, The Saturdays and The Cheeky Girls have all supported the event in previous years.
