London to Brighton Cycle Ride – 17 September 

Starting in south London, this is a 54-mile bike ride through the English countryside before finishing on Brighton seafront; exhilarating and challenging but easily achievable with a bit of preparation.

The London Duathlon – 17 September

This great event is a run-bike-run triathlon on closed roads through beautiful Richmond Park. You can enter as an individual, or a team of two or three. The distances aren’t too long and you don’t need to be a triathlete to take part. Why not even challenge your friends to a team contest.

Royal Parks Half-Marathon – 18 October

If you are more of an experienced runner, the Royal Parks Half Marathon is one of the nicest events you can take part in. Passing through some of London’s most picturesque parks and cheered on by thousands of spectators, it really is a mini London Marathon. Perhaps you are a 10k runner wanting to increase your distance? If so, this is also the perfect event for you. Held on closed roads, the compact and flat route makes this one of the best half marathons to start with.
