This stunning central London Half Marathon takes place around some of the capital's world-famous landmarks and in four of London's eight Royal Parks - Hyde Park, Green Park, St James's Park and Kensington Gardens.

Whether you’re a beginner or a regular runner, there is plenty of time to begin training and WLM will support you with your training and fundraising along the way. You will also receive a free WLM running t-shirt!

Public spaces have completely sold out for this event so the only way to take part is by running for a charity. Charity spaces are limited and will definitely sell out so be sure to register as soon as possible to save yourself a space in this iconic race!

Please note that running for WLM is subject to agreeing to our Royal Parks Half terms and conditions which are stated below.

Terms & Conditions:
WLM has paid for a set number of spaces. In order to ensure that we do not lose any of our vital funds we ask that each of our runners raises at least £200 for WLM. This covers the cost of one space as well as additional admin costs. In order to run for WLM you must agree to raise at least £200. As spaces are limited and in high demand, WLM reserves the right to replace a runner with another individual if the original space-holder does not complete their RPH runner registration in a timely manner or if we have doubts about their fundraising. We will be in contact prior to this and give plenty of warning.
