This stunning 13.1 mile race takes place in the capital's world famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of the eight Royal Parks - Hyde Park, The Green Park, St. James's Park and Kensington Gardens. This scenic run is great for first-time runners or regular runners wanting to hit their PB!

Charity fundraising ideas
We're here to help you with your fundraising. Every year people just like you raise hundreds, or even thousands, of pounds.
Here's our handy guide to how you might get your fundraising started (and have fun at the same time!):
- A film night - £100
Whether it's a retro-classic or so bad it's good, get a space, some popcorn and invite people to a cosy film night. Ask them to pay what they would in a cinema.
- Dinner party - £150
Wine and dine your friends and family by inviting them to your home for a dinner party. Ask them to pay what they would in a restaurant.
- Have a clear out - £150
Having a big sort out is great during any time of the year. Sell your unwanted clothes and accessories online to rack up the cash.
Email us on [email protected] with any questions or for any further information. We're here to support 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
