Join us in Regent's Park for this once per year half marathon, on a famous, fast multi-lap course. With the famous 10K in The Regent's Park each month, we offer this spring half marathon each year to give runners to the chance to run further with the same beautiful landscape and great race atmosphere. Due to time-restrictions of running events permitted to take place in the park, all finishers must complete this race within two and half hours.
Running alongside London Zoo, lucky runners will spot camels, giraffes or even some big cats, while other sections of the course take you past the tranquil boating lake, floral gardens and centuries-old statues and monuments.
With the start / finish line situated next to The Hub - the park's largest cafe and changing facility, and acres of open space for relaxing and recovering with friends, you'll be able to make a great trip out to celebrate one of your fastest half marathon times, recorded by timing chip on this official UK Athletics licensed and measured course.
There's no finish line feeling quite like The Regent's Park!
