BUPA London 10,000

Written by Emma on 25th July 2014

Have you been inspired by Olympic success last summer? If so why not think about taking on a challenge of your own this year? Not only will it help keep you motivated but the sponsorship money you raise will help Children Today to provide vital equipment, enabling disabled children to overcome obstacles, gain freedom and achieve their potential just like the Paralympians who have achieved so much.

If Mo Farah was your hero of 2012 then why not follow in his footsteps and take on the London BUPA 10k, which Mo won for the fourth time last year? The course of the race on Monday 27th May follows much of the Olympic Marathon route running past the same London landmarks as many of the world’s best athletes did last year.

The Race starts (and finishes) in The Mall and follows a clockwise route around the City of Westminster and the City of London. Runners pass many of London’s famous sights including, Admiralty Arch, Nelson’s Column, St Paul’s Cathedral, Mansion House, Bank of England, Leadenhall Market, The Monument, Millennium Bridge, Tate Gallery, Cleopatra’s Needle, London Eye, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey. It is also hoped that Buckingham Palace will act as the backdrop for both the start and finish. (All Royal Parks information is subject to approval).

There is no minimum sponsorship requirement to join the team, just a £25 registration fee. Although we do not have a minimum sponsorship, we ask that all participants raise as much as they can, as every penny you can raise will make a really difference to a disabled child’s life.
