We would love you to join us for this stunning central London Half Marathon in Autumn 2024 and experience the buzz of this iconic event whilst raising money for children in conflict zones.

The route takes in some of the capital's world-famous landmarks on closed roads, starting in Hyde Park, and running through Green Park, St James's Park and Kensington Gardens. It’s a race on every runner’s bucket list.

The £325 minimum sponsorship target could provide 10 whole families caught up in conflict with all their basic needs for a month, including food and blankets, or cover the cost of 19 children being safely reunited with their family.
