Hampton Court Half Marathon

Giggs Hill Green, Thames Ditton, Sunday 26th February 2023

08:30 start

Quicksilver Running’s flagship event celebrates its tenth year in 2023. One of South West London’s major running events, the Hampton Court Half Marathon is highly rated as preparation for a Spring marathon or a major distance race in its own right. The 2023 race takes place 8 weeks before the Brighton Marathon  and 9 weeks before the TCS London Marathon, making it an ideal target race in the training build up to these events.

The Quicksilver race is the original Hampton Court Half Marathon and 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. King Henry VIII  and his Tudor entourage will be there to cheer everyone on!

Runners enjoy an initial closed road loop around the picturesque village of Thames Ditton, pass through historic Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames ancient marketplace, follow the iconic 3 mile stretch of the Barge Walk beside the Thames, and reach the magnificent Hampton Court Palace after 10 miles. The route follows closed roads, pavement, pedestrian/cycle track, riverside way, and tarmac paths through parks and is well recognised for its PB potential.

All finishers will receive our super bespoke race medal once crossing the finish line.

PLUS free race photos. An amazing free package of race photos of YOU, worth £19.50, included in the price of your entry. Professional Photographers on the course will take pics of all competitors, and after the race you can access your personal portfolio and download all, or just the ones you like. Go to the gallery page now to see examples from the 2022 event.

Kingston Hospital Charity

We work with colleagues from across Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and with individuals and organisations in our community to maximise support for three main groups:

Patients and their families by enhancing their experience, through the environments they are cared in and the programmes and equipment we fund

The committed and dedicated staff who work at Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, to ensure they can deliver outstanding care

The researchers working in our hospital and partner institutes, who are committed to improving the current and future health of our patients

Everything we achieve is thanks to our amazing supporters. With your help, Kingston Hospital is able to go further and faster than is possible with NHS funding alone.

We are immensely grateful to all who care for our hospital and we strive to ensure that all donations are spent as wisely and cost effectively as possible.
