This stunning central London half marathon takes in some of the capital’s world-famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of London’s leafy Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.

The Royal Parks Half Marathon has sustainability at the top of the agenda. You’ll find FSC certified wooden medals, race shirts made from recycled bottles and bamboo, and biodegradable water capsules amongst other innovative ideas!

Join #TeamRetinaUK to help provide information and support so people can lead better lives today and fund medical research for treatments for the future.

Guide runners

Any participant who needs a guide can request a free place for their support runner from the event organisers. The event organisers will need to know the reason that support is required. Your guide will receive a finisher’s medal as well as a Retina UK running vest. If you have any questions about this, please do get in touch with our team.
