I would thoroughly recommend taking part in the Royal Parks Half Marathon – not only is it a beautiful course, but the atmosphere is absolutely fantastic. It was an absolute privilege to run for KIDS and the team was amazingly supportive, both before the event (providing training plans and tips, and ideas for fundraising too) and on the day.  Running past the KIDS supporters at mile 9 was an absolute highlight – the supporters cheered me on and gave me a boost when I needed it the most!

This award-winning half marathon exposes you to the greener side of London. The stunning 13.1 mile route takes you past some of the capital's most famous landmarks, passing on closed roads through four of London's grandest parks - Hyde Park, Green Park, St. James Park & Kensington Gardens. The course remains relatively flat and maintains an excellent atmosphere throughout, the event was created to be an annual fundraising activity, encouraging runners and volunteers to get together to raise funds for good causes.
