Overview

The Royal Borough of Kingston Half Marathon is run on an officially measured course under a UKA license. Starting in the famous Ancient Market Place, runners will then cover 5 miles through the historic Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames before crossing over Kingston Bridge and heading up the iconic three mile stretch of the Barge Walk beside the Thames. The race then reaches the magnificent Hampton Court Palace before continuing through Thames Ditton and back towards Kingston for the famous Market Place finish. It’s a great opportunity to run on a fast and scenic route and chill out afterwards over coffee on the Kingston riverside!
