More than just “an organised footrace extending beyond the standard marathon running distance of 26.2 miles (42.2 kilometres)”, our Ultra takes all our experience of organising our multi-award-winning Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon, and uses it to create a fully supported, beautiful event, taking in the best of London and its varied landscapes, with your experience as a runner at the heart of every decision we take.

Organised by a charity for charities, the event not only showcases the best of London and its stunning parks, but supports the work of charities large and small, including the Royal Parks Foundation, the charity for London’s eight amazing Royal Parks
