Starting on Piccadilly outside The Cavalry & Guards Club on Hyde Park corner, runners will make their way past huge crowds and London landmarks including the London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.
The route proves hugely popular with both new and seasoned runners, attracted by the chance to run one of the most unique routes in the world and to be spurred on by tens of thousands of spectators lining the route from start to finish.
Runners will head along Piccadilly towards Piccadilly Circus, taking in Regent Street, Pall Mall, and St James Palace. It’s then a right turn towards Trafalgar Square, before taking a left into Charing Cross Road. The route then drops down to the Embankment, before turning left towards the city. Following the Embankment, runners will take a left to run the length of Temple Place before making a wide turn back onto the Embankment westbound, soaking up the atmosphere for almost 2km before turning left onto Westminster Bridge.
Here runners will make a turn towards the spectacular backdrop of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, they’ll make one loop of Parliament Square, and then head towards the finish line on Whitehall.
Every year, runners raise millions of pounds for hundreds of causes. The Official National Charity Partners include Epilepsy and Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, the official charity partner of the Vitality Run Series, along with a number of other partners and charities.
This is the perfect summer 10k, and this year, all runners will receive a t-shirt from race partner, Brooks, a medal, and a post-race massage on race day.
