This event has an Association of Running Clubs permit. Permit Number: ARC 15/017.

The original Hampton Court Half Marathon is run over a fast, flat and visually interesting course that borders the river-side grounds of the magnificent Hampton Court Palace to the South West  of London. Now in its second year we believe this race is a useful addition to the pre-Spring marathon training timetable as well as being an enjoyable event in its own right.

Runners will enjoy full views of the Hampton Court Palace, the historic  Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames Marketplace,  the picturesque village of Thames Ditton and the three mile stretch of the Barge Walk beside the Thames. The course runs on pavement, shared pedestrian/cycle track, riverside way, tarmac paths through parks and  woodland trails. The race starts at 08.30 a.m.  with a closed road section. The early  start gives all entrants a clear run  on the open public road elements. There are good local parking facilities, toilets and an indoors baggage area at the Race HQ at Esher College. Significant improvements will be made with our experience from the inaugural race in 2014.

Our friend, Henry VIII, will be returning to the The Hampton Court Half 2015 to help cheer everyone on!
