The Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon is Britain’s most beautiful city run and one of the most popular half marathon events, attracting 12,500 runners to race the 13.1 mile course through London and four stunning Royal Parks.
Spurred on by the cheers of the spectators and supporters, over four years, runners have raised more than £11m for more than 360 partner charities, including Mind, Tommy’s, Cancer Research UK and UNICEF.
For the Royal Parks Foundation, looking after spectators and supporters is just as important to us as looking after our runners. Whether you know someone running or not, why not come along to cheer on the amazing runners and enjoy a great day out. Your support will make all the difference.
Cheer on the runners from 9.30am in Hyde Park - those setting off on the half marathon course, those participating in the new 50km Royal Parks Foundation Ultra, partnered with Scope, and our younger runners who are completing their own challenge, Pulse3K.
Food & Fitness Festival
At the Partridges Duke of York Square Food & Fitness Festival you can sample the best local produce and enjoy a delicious range of food on offer and have a go at some of the family friendly activities including Parkour, a climbing wall, swingball, and even a tumbletots area for little ones. When you’re not having a tasty treat or trying an activity, you can just soak up the atmosphere and enjoy live music in the beautiful surroundings of Hyde Park.
Find out more about the Food & Fitness Festival, including how to get there, the range of activities and key timings on the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon website.
Hope to see you there!
