One of the UK's most popular half marathons, taking place right in the centre of London.
Starting and finishing in Hyde Park, the race takes a scenic route past Green Park, St James Park, the Houses of Parliament, and Victoria Embankment.
A big race, a flat course and an amazing atmosphere; all wrapped up in the centre of London. You couldn't ask for anything better!
This year, your donations will go towards building The Francis Crick Institute. The Francis Crick Institute is a visionary collaboration between six of the world's leading medical research organisations, including Cancer Research UK and we're helping to create an exciting new centre of research in London's Kings Cross.
Cancer Research UK believes that, with the best facilities and the best scientific minds, we will learn more about what makes cancer start, spread and develop. The Francis Crick Insitute scientists will help unravel the mysteries behind cancer and other diseases, ultimately improving the lives of patients across the world. To find out more, click here.
