Distance: 13.1 Miles | Registration Fee: £30 | Fundraising Target: £300

This is the only half marathon event to be held at one of the UK’s most popular tourist destinations, Hampton Court Palace, the home of Tudor King, Henry VIII.

Starting inside the gates of Hampton Court palace, you’ll get a right royal start before you run a flat route along the River Thames towpath and finish in Henry’s hunting ground – Bushy Park.

Why Child Bereavement UK?

Child Bereavement UK supports families and educates professionals both when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, and  when a child is facing bereavement. We aim to ensure the accessibility of high quality child bereavement support and information to all families and professionals by increasing our reach; plugging the gaps that exist in bereavement support and training across the country; and embedding standards in the sector.

When you fundraise for us, you’ll receive:

  • a welcome email & fundraising pack from our events team
  • a Child Bereavement UK running vest to wear on the day with iron-on letters
  • support from our dedicated fundraising & events team to achieve your target
  • e-newsletters updating you with news from across the charity
  • access to our online Facebook group, where other fundraisers share training and fundraising advice

I decided to run for Child Bereavement UK because it was a charity close to my heart. We lost our precious Isabel at 4 months old and the support from a charity like this would have been very helpful. Child Bereavement UK helped me with every step of my fundraising journey, I never felt alone throughout the process and knew support was an email away. Running for such a worthwhile cause will be something I will treasure for a lifetime. Lizee and the team at Child Bereavement UK really go beyond the call of duty and I’m so grateful I was able to raise my goal amount and give back just a little

Gen ran the Hampton Court Palace Half Marathon and raised £305!
