Great location Hampton course palace you can bring your family on the day they can have lots to see while waiting for you to finish your race, very close to train station & parking, start & finish at same location, nice medal, t-shirt & goody bag,The organisers little bit messed up with the gun time & actual chip time and also registration information was incorrect for some participants, might be just data error. Slightly expensive than some other London race events. Overall very good event 👍
3.0Did the Half Marathon in 2021
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!
5.0Did 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.

Can you walk it? I have a knee injury so can’t run much at the moment
Sorry you're injured! It does mention that there is a strict three hour cut off time for this event, so that'll be worth considering.When you book through LDT you do get free injury protection so that's a back up if you find you're not able to manage. https://www.letsdothis.com/refunds
