Royal Parks Half

11 April 2021

Join the sell-out Royal Parks Half!

Run for Team Action in this incredible half marathon and have a unique sightseeing tour of London's iconic landmarks and its stunning Royal parks.

This central London Half Marathon route goes through an incredible mix of beautiful spaces and iconic London landmarks. You will pass some of the capital's world-famous landmarks on closed roads and also enjoy the stunning scenery of four of London's eight Royal Parks - Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James's Park and Kensington Gardens. 

Now in its 13th year, The Royal Parks Half is an exemplary race as the event is an annual sell-out on the running calendar, with 16,000 people taking part - so it is one not to be missed!

Keep a green conscience whilst absorbing the green landscapes of the parks as this race is one of the first major UK running events to go plastic bottle free. Not only that, but you will receive a bamboo and recycled polyester finisher t-shirt too!

Come and soak up the atmosphere and sights of London whilst doing something incredible for Action Medical Research and raising money to help sick and vulnerable babies and children.

Run for a Reason

Run for children like Luka

Baby Luka was born very prematurely at just 30 weeks. He contracted the serious bowel disease NEC but thankfully he survived after emergency surgery and is now a healthy one-year-old. Action has funded a wide range of studies into premature birth and NEC, by running the London 10k for Action you'll be joining our fight to help stop babies being born too soon.
