British 10K London Run
On Sunday 14th July, thousands of competitors will put on their running shoes and venture across London as they partake in the UK’s most prestigious road race, the British 10K London Run.
Widely regarded as the ‘world’s greatest road race route’, this popular 10K attracts more than 25,000 runners every year. 2013 runners will cover ground that was part of the route used for the Olympic marathons last summer, and as ever there are many iconic sights to behold as participant’s battle their way around a course famed for its elegant surroundings.
Notable landmarks the runners will pass include St Paul’s Cathedral, the London Eye, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and St James’s Palace. Visit the British 10K London Run website and sneak a glimpse at the full list of amazing attractions – it’s fair to say the scenery along this route does not disappoint!
All 18 spots for this year's British 10K London Run have been filled. If you are still eager to race for us, get in touch and we can add you to our reserve runners.

The Food Chain will stand out from a sea of sponsored runners by wearing a bright green running vests, and the race stewards will ensure they stay safe, hydrated and entertained throughout the run.
There is nothing to stop you from running the race of your life; all it takes is one completed form sent to The Food Chain and [maybe just a little] training! Not only this, but there is significant satisfaction to be taken from fundraising for us; the money you raise will go towards improving our services and helping people living with HIV get well, and stay well.
Sunday 14th July 2013
The start at Piccadilly outside the Guards & Calvary Club will be dressed once again with Union flags - as will the finish on Whitehall just north of the Cenotaph. You can’t miss it!
How we’ll support you
When you register you will receive a fundraising pack, Food Chain green running vest and we'll put you in touch with the other runners so you can share training tips and fundraising ideas. On race day we cheer on the team and give you a well deserved snack in the park afterwards.
Registration Fee and Sponsorship
We ask you to pledge to raise a minimum of £200 for The Food Chain.
It is our 25th anniversary on Christmas Day 2013, so why not aim for £250 – a fitting figure to help mark our special birthday.
