How to enter the Hampton Court Palace Half Marathon

Hampton Court Palace Half Marathon route

The event starts and finishes in the grounds of Hampton Court Palace.

One of the main benefits that Hampton Court Palace has for running is being placed next to the River Thames. This means that ground around and inside the Palace is flat.

Many see this closed road course as one for a potential PB.

One thing for sure, is that you will be hard pushed to find a more scenic event in the UK.

  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Beautiful setting at Hampton Court Palace. The atmosphere was electric with loads of spectators and friendly marshals. The goodie bag was the best park with plenty of delicious goodies and an epic medal!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    This was an awesome event. Starting right in front of Hampton Court Palace, the course was very scenic, running on the river Thames path and through the palace grounds. The goodie bag and medal had to be one of the best parts of the race with so many healthy treats, epic medal and finisher t-shirt.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Good flat course and scenic route
