Luxury London hotel guests will have a chance to raise money for good causes by taking part in the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon on October 7th 2012.

Starting and finishing at Hyde Park, the 13.1-mile race takes place along a scenic route that travels through Kensington Gardens, Green Park and St James's Park, while offering views of landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye.

The run is known for its carnival atmosphere and family appeal, with an accompanying race called Pulse3K designed specifically to encourage youngsters to get active.

Around £11 million has been raised for 365 charities since the event debuted in 2008, while attendees will also be able to savour delicious treats at the Food & Fitness Festival that runs alongside it.

People staying at The Chesterfield Mayfair Hotel will be able to build their strength back up after the tiring run by enjoying a Michelin-starred curry night, courtesy of the Taste of Tamarind package.

Guests will be able to travel to the acclaimed Tamarind Restaurant to sample a range of Moghul-inspired dishes, plus a complimentary glass of Champagne with their meal.
