Royal Parks 2013

Hi Everyone

I'm fairly new to running but looking to attempt my first half next year.

Has anyone taken part in the above mentioned event?

Is it a good one for a first try at making the jump from 10k to half?

Thanks in advance.


  • Hi Sarah

    I did this half marathon in October as my first try at making the jump from 10km and would absolutely recommend it. Good organisation on the day, beautiful route and flat. It's my favourite race I've ever done - do it!

  • Hi Sarah, I did this one in October and loved it. Great organisation, lovely route through London and Hyde park, great support on the course and nice'n'flat for a good time.

    Yes and yes. Very popular now though and gone to ballot entry so hard to get into unless you go down the charity route.

    I think it's a great entry race and I did it this year but I won't do it again. It's too expensive for a half marathon when there are other ones out there.

    There's lots of support and crowds but no changing facilities or showers at the end. I also felt that for a race that was trying to be sustainable - it wasn't very. There was a lot of waste of water bottles and trash.

    Medal is nice though!
