Twenty runners successfully completed the Royal Parks Half Marathon on October 9th in aid of the Panathlon charity.

The Royal Parks Half Marathon is one of the UK’s most popular races, with over 16,000 runners winding their way through London’s beautiful Royal Parks and past some of the capital’s most famous landmarks. The 13.1 mile course takes in three Royal Parks and landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Downing Street and the Serpentine.

Team Panathlon this year included runners from our friends at Accenture, Network Rail, Bilko, EQ Investors, Lane4, GLL Better, Miller Insurance, the Woodland Group and staff members from the Panathlon team as well.

On a beautiful autumnal morning, Hyde Park looked stunning and the weather conditions meant that it was likely personal best times would be up for grabs. The runners’ finishing times were as follows:

  1. Matt Iceton 1 hour 26 minutes 11 seconds
  2. Catherine Conway 1 hour 33 mins 31 seconds
  3. James Bradley 1 hour 34 mins 57 seconds
