The London 10,000 starts and finishes in St James’s Park and uses Green Park as its assembly area.

The race starts on The Mall and finishes on Spur Road opposite Buckingham Palace. Runners follow a clockwise route around the City of Westminster and the City of London. It passes many of London’s famous sights including Admiralty Arch, Nelson’s Column, St Paul’s Cathedral, Mansion House, the Bank of England, the Old Bailey, Somerset House, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey.

This is a popular event so register now.

"Running 10km was a huge achievement for me and a motivating factor was knowing that with every step I was raising money for such a great cause. I feel incredibly proud and a huge sense of accomplishment."

Emma, Bupa 10km participant

Training advice 

That sponsorship target!

Don’t be over whelmed by it, you’ll make it!

As well as asking friends, family and colleagues for donations, you might need to do some extra fundraising activities to hit your target (unless you have lots of very generous friends). Who knows, you may even smash it!

When you sign up, you'll receive a fundraising pack which has loads of ideas to help you with this, it's split into two sections; covering quick fundraising ideas for busy people and larger fundraising activities such as setting up a pub quiz.  

And we’re always on the end of the phone too with support and advice.

Go for it!

We support you every step of the way.
