“We really saw London at its best and we were completely overwhelmed by the support of both the spectators and our fellow runners.”

This spectacular central London half marathon, the first and only one of its kind, celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2017.
The stunning 13.1 miles route, on closed roads, showcases the iconic sights of London through four Royal Parks (Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, St James’s Park, and The Green Park) and past some of the capital’s most historic landmarks, including Buckingham Palace, Horse Guards Parade and the Royal Albert Hall.

Frequently asked questions
We are a small charity with limited resources but we would give you as much support with your fundraising as we can, including help with setting up a fundraising page and promoting your fundraising. As a member of Team AP you would receive a free running vest or t-shirt to wear on the day and during your training. And, of course, the satisfying and rewarding feeling that your efforts are helping thousands of disadvantaged school children in Kenya.
Although undulating in parts, the Royal Parks Half course is not hilly and is great for either experienced or first time half marathon runners. Unfortunately we cannot provide advice or guidance on training but we would recommend you see a doctor and get a full health check before embarking on training for a run of this distance.
