Get your kicks on and take part in this enjoyable and rewarding way to explore our capital city. The half marathon length of 13 miles is the perfect option if the full 26 miles feels a bit too long.

The half marathon walk starts at the event hub in Bloomsbury Square Garden. For the first mile you'll follow the same route as the full marathon participants, before splitting off eastwards towards St Paul's Cathedral. You'll then get to enjoy the peaceful parks and waterways of the city, such as Regent's Canal, Regent's Park, and Hyde Park. You'll also get to see some of London's most iconic spots such as Camden Market, Marble Arch, and Buckingham Palace.

For more information, view the full challenge event details on the Discover Adventure website.

Walking amongst famous London landmarks on the big day was great motivation! I am really proud to have pushed myself so that first aid can help change outcomes in emergencies.
