This is the most spectacular half marathon that central London has to offer - it is a unique and inspiring event.
Charity runners will glide through four of London's stunning Royal Parks, Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, St James's Park and The Green Park. The 13.1m extraordinary route brushes past London's most famous landmarks, including The Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace, all on closed roads.
Plus, the event village in Hyde Park hosts a fantastic food and fitness festival, ensuring a brilliant day out for runners and supporters alike.
The Royal Parks Half is a beautiful event with charity at its heart and has raised nearly £60 million for over 1000 charity partners since 2008.
The Cotswolds Dogs and Cats Home is a rescue and rehoming centre run by an independent branch of the RSPCA. All of our funding comes from the support of our local community and is run by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers.
Each year we rehome hundreds of the county's most vulnerable animals, many of whom have been mistreated, abandoned, and are in ill health. Once in our care, the team works closely to rehabilitate the animals, ready to find their new forever homes. We are proud to have a non-destruction policy and keep the animals in our care until they have found the right family.
All animals are neutered, vaccinated and treated for fleas, ticks and worms. Those suffering with further health problems will be treated with us, sometimes costing our charity thousands of pounds each year.
We also run various programmes to give back to our local community, including our low-cost vet clinics, pet food banks and pet retreat scheme.
