Royal Parks Half Marathon

Royal Parks Half Marathon

Take part in the Royal Parks Half Marathon as part of Team Starfish

Having been described as “the most beautiful city run, in the world’s greatest city”, the Royal Parks Half Marathon shouldn’t disappoint! The 13.1 mile route takes in famous landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye and the Royal Albert Hall. So you can enjoy some sightseeing while taking part in this hugely popular challenge!

As well as the race, the day includes a free food and fitness festival in Hyde Park – the course start/finish location – so is a great place to head with your supporters when you complete the run.


Registrations for the 2020 event are now closed, but we are taking applications for 2021.

If you would like to take part in the 2021 event, please complete this short online form.
