Running Events in London

London provides hundreds of incredible running events throughout the year, catering to all standards and distances. These races are amazing ways of building communities and seeing the capital city in a new light. There are now over 50 Parkrun locations for you to try a weekly 5k, or there are a whole range of fun runs and charity events over a similar distance. These are great for getting family, friends, and the local community involved. If you are looking for a longer distance, there are a number of 10k and half-marathon events that make the most of London's historic landmarks, beautiful parks, or the scenic Thames path. Big city running festivals in Richmond and Hackney offer several race options and always have an incredible atmosphere of crowds, music, and more. Of course, the flagship running event in London is the annual London Marathon, which has over 40,000 competitors and 800,000 spectators, and is one of the six world marathon majors.
