It boasts a beautiful 13.1 mile autumnal route through four of London's magnificent Royal Parks and past some of the capital's most iconic landmarks.

You'll have the opportunity to run alongside 12,500 runners though Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, The Green Park and St James's Park, as well as take in the sights of Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, Marble Arch and the Royal Albert Hall.

Why run for Railway Children?

Over the last 22 years we have helped over 300,000 vulnerable children in East Africa, India and the UK. But we’re only just getting started.

We need you to join our fight for children who have nowhere to go and no-one to turn to. With your help we can give more children a future and keep them safe - for good.
