About this challenge

In 2008 we created a spectacular Half Marathon in central London – the first and only one of its kind. The stunning 13.1 mile route takes in the capital’s world-famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of London’s eight Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens. We, like all of our runners, want to see the best of London’s city and parks, so our fantastic event goes beyond just running 13.1 miles, as we design the day so that spectators have as much fun as the runners themselves.

Spectacular Half Marathon

This is a brilliant half that mixes the best of central London with really beautiful park running. It's well supported and organised and there are a lot of participants with a really nice vibe all round. The second half of the race is all in Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens which is really beautiful and feels very chilled out compared to the street running section that dominates the first part of the race. A brilliant event but you have to get in the ballot and be lucky enough to take part, or run for a charity.

Fantastic run through middle of London

Amazing run across Westminster bridge right under Big Ben, along the embankment and around Hyde park. Really well organised event. Thousands of runners of all different levels (I'm pretty slow but wasn't the slowest!) All on pavement/road. Very flat course so could be quite a fast race - good for setting a PB! So many supporters which was really amazing especially around Hyde Park which is the second half of the race.
