The Palace Half Marathon is a flat and picturesque course which starts and finishes inside Hampton Court Palace.
Running at this historic venue offers not only a perfect opportunity to run a personal best but to visit and run inside one of the UK’s major tourist attractions.
The race starts within the Palace grounds and heads out alongside the Tow Path adjacent to the Thames.
Once you reach the end of the Towpath for the first time, you shall turn right across the Kingston Bridge and run back alongside the opposite side of the river before entering the Towpath for a second time.
Upon arrival at the split for a second time, you will turn left and enter Home Park for roughly 4k before a sprint finish inside the Palace grounds.
