Best New Race of the Decade!

03 May 2017

We're over the moon to have won Runner's World "Best New Race of the Decade" as voted for by their readers in the Personal Best awards.

Since the first Royal Parks Half in 2008, over 112,000 runners have crossed the finish line in Hyde Park, raising over £30m for over 750 charities.

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to all our runners, volunteers, spectators, partners and all the charities linked to the race over the years. You really have made the race what it is today with your incredible and continued support!

It's exciting enough to be celebrating #10yearsrunning together, and this really is the icing on our 10th birthday cake.

Thanks again to everyone that has been a part of our first 10 years!
