Created in 2008, this is a spectacular Half Marathon in central London – the first 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.

As well as running through these historic parks, competitors also take in iconic landmarks, such as Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and the Houses of Parliament.
