The Royal Parks Half Marathon, first held in 2008, takes place each October, starting and finishing in Hyde Park. It is the only Half-Marathon that travels through central London and four of the Royal Parks and is one of London's largest half-marathons with over 16,000 participants.[1]

History[edit]

The Royal Parks Half Marathon was established in 2008 by the Royal Parks Foundation as an annual fundraising initiative to both raise funds to support the Foundations work in maintaining London’s eight Royal Parks and enabling charities to be involved as well. Since its inception the event raised over £43 million for more than 1000 UK charities.[1]

Route[edit]

The route starts and ends in Hyde Park and travels through and past many of central London's famous landmarks on closed roads. It also takes in four of the eight Royal Parks in London, namely Hyde Park, The Green Park, St. James's Park and Kensington Gardens.[1]
