London Vitality 10,000 - Bank Holiday Monday, 27th May 2019

The Vitality London 10k takes it through all key central London locations: 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. The course 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.

Each kilometre will be clearly marked. A timing mat at the halfway point will take your 5km split time. There are water stations at 3km and 6.5km. Toilets will be placed close to 3km, 5km and 7km for runners’ use.

We are paying for each place around £35 and are looking for runners who would be willing to raise a higher amount so that any additional funds raised can support our charitable work. If you are interested, please get in touch with Chris Mikata on 020 7385 8850 or email chrismikata@fulhamgoodneighbours.org.
