Half Marathon at Hampton Court Palace
Hampton Court Palace will be hosting ‘The Palace Half’ the official half marathon to start and finish at Hampton Court Palace on Sunday 19th March 2017.
The event starts outside the main palace entrance at 09:00 with a wave start where runners are dispersed onto the course every 5 minutes over a 25 minute period. This will enable runners to be spread out across the route and will prevent congestion along the way. The race is due to finish at 12:30 although this is dependent on the runners on the day.
The route will be marshalled with stewards and traffic management teams lining the route. A map of the route of the 13.5mile race is above.
There will be 3,500 runners taking part so vehicle access to Barge Walk will temporarily be restricted during 09:00 and 12:30 on this date. The only other vehicle restriction will be placed on Trophy Gate as access down Trophy Drive within the palace grounds is closed between 08:55 and 09:25 for the start of the race. Adams Gate and Moat Lane are still
available for accessing the site during this half an hour.
Parking for runners and spectators will be provided on Hampton Court Green in an area separate from the established car park. Stewards will be managing this car park.
