The beautiful 13.1mile route has been designed so that runners can see the best of London’s city and parks, and so that spectators have as much fun as the runners themselves. The event journeys through four Royal Parks (Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, St James's Park, and The Green Park) and will take you past some of the capital's most historic landmarks, including Buckingham Palace, Horse Guards Parade and the Royal Albert Hall.

Although undulating in parts, the course is not hilly and is great for either experienced or first time half marathon runners.
