Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon

  • Date: 9 Oct 2016

  • Location: London

The Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon will be held on Sunday 9 October 2016.

The route goes through four of London’s finest parks – St James’s Park, Green Park, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens – and takes in landmarks including Admiralty Arch, Somerset House and the Houses of Parliament.

One Howard League member, who ran the Royal Parks Half in 2015, said: “Taking part in this event is a wonderful experience. You get to see some of the best sights in one of the world’s great cities while thousands of people wave and cheer you on.

“The feeling you get at the finish line is fantastic, particularly if you’ve been training and collecting sponsorship money for a good cause. I can’t recommend this event highly enough.”
