Be a half marathon hero for Team St Barnabas in 2021!

Not only do you get to run through some of the most beautiful green space London has to offer, you’ll do it to the backdrop of some of the capital’s world famous landmarks – all on closed roads.

The Royal Parks Half Marathon takes in four of London’s eight Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.
