Help out on the day
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!
With your help we can beat cancer sooner. Join our team and help raise money for our life-saving research.
