With a challenging marathon distance of 42km to cover, this challenge is a fantastic test of your stamina and will leave you with an incredible sense of achievement.

Starting around 7.30am, you visit Bushy Park and Richmond Park before crossing the River Thames and heading into Chelsea. Little known Brompton Cemetery is the next Royal Park before reaching Victoria Tower Gardens in the heart of Westminster. Following on through St James's Park and Green Park you reach the iconic Buckingham Palace, before continuing to Hyde Park and Kensington Garden. The route then turns north and goes through Regent's Park before reaching Primrose Hill, your ninth Royal Park with excellent views of the London skyline. You then follow Regent's Canal east before crossing the River Thames to reach the final Royal Park - Greenwich Park. By the end of the challenge you will have visited each of the 10 'Royal Parks'.

Every penny you raise will mean we can be there to help more animals when they need us most. Together we can make sure animals are cared for, protected and given a second chance in a loving home.
