The Royal Borough of Kingston’s famous Half Marathon, starting and finishing in the historic ancient Market Place, is the perfect finale to the summer racing season. The course is fast and flat, with tremendous riverside views on a mix of traffic free and road sections. Ideal for runners wanting to grab a late half marathon PB or those looking for a scenic and pleasurable run. Kingston Market Place provides an atmospheric finish, with plenty of stalls offering a variety of foods, and many local restaurants and pubs for those looking for more leisurely post race relaxation. Now organised by River Thames Running, you can be sure of a professional setup with plenty of friendly and experienced marshals to guide you safely around the course.

There will also be a Kingston 10k event in 2024.
