The Royal Parks Half Marathon – Why I’m excited!



We’ve got a new event this year in the form of a half marathon around London’s Royal Parks! Can you guess what it’s called?

Yep, the Royal Parks Half Marathon!

I wanted to write a blog as to why I think this is going to be an amazing event, I’m really excited about it!

The event is now 10 years old, so it will be a celebration of all things running. This means they’ll pull out all of the stops and make participants feel extra special when they run, which is what we always love to hear. After all, people are running a half marathon for us – no small achievement! There’s even a food and fitness festival at the start/finish!

The Royal Parks Half Marathon may have one of the more beautiful settings for a half marathon as well…it’s in the autumn (08 October), just as the leaves are falling and it’s around the leafy parks of London, ones which are world renowned for their pristine walks (or runs)! From the lake of Hyde Park and the Pelicans of St James’s Park to the spectacular sight of Nelson’s Column, the scenery and wildlife is a major advantage of this run!

Finally, you will be in good company…around 16,000 runners take part each year! This means there’s a really good social aspect with the race. There’s a chance to meet a whole new group of people who share your passions, whether that’s running, fundraising, or shining a light on good causes in general.

So that’s why I think the Royal Parks Half Marathon is one to get excited about this year. It’s certainly made me excited!
