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 Henry VIII.

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

Why Child Bereavement UK?

Child Bereavement UK helps families to rebuild their lives when a child grieves or when a child dies. We support children and young people (up to the age of 25) when someone important to them has died or is not expected to live, and parents and the wider family when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying. We provide training to professionals in health and social care, education, and the voluntary and corporate sectors, equipping them to provide the best possible care to bereaved families.

When you fundraise for us, you’ll receive:

  • a welcome email and fundraising pack from our events team
  • a charity running vest to wear on the day with iron-on letters
  • support to achieve your target from our dedicated fundraising and events team 
  • 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.

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