London Winter Run promo for 2024

Winter Run 80% Full

Just a week left to sign up for the full experience at London's coolest 10K...

A whopping 17,000 people have already committed to brave the cold at the 8th Cancer Research UK London Winter Run 10K on Sunday 25 February 2024, meaning this year’s event will be one of the largest to date. Less than 20% of places remain and with just over seven weeks left to train, now is the perfect time to commit to kick off 2024 in a healthy way.

Everyone who signs up before Wednesday 10 January 2024 will receive the full experience, including personalised event bib with their name posted in advance to UK residents only. Should any capacity be remaining after this date, the final places will be sold with a standard event bib.

Cancer Research UK London Winter Run takes place in the heart of London on a route that passes dozens of famous London landmarks. The event is renowned for being perfect for all abilities and with plenty of live music and larger-than-life winter characters, participants won’t be short of support or encouragement to get them through to the finish line.

The event is delivered in partnership with Cancer Research UK, and has already seen over 100,000 people take part since the inaugural run in 2015 and over £5.7 million has been raised for life-saving cancer research.

Last year's leading finishers were Ellis Cross (Aldershot, Farnham & District, 28:52) and Jess Warner-Judd (Blackburn Harriers, 31:59) – who finished fifth overall and was one of several GB internationals to grace the field.  There were 13,674 finishers and almost half of those beat the hour on the flat, fast course that finishes in the shadow of Big Ben.

With 10 waves starting from 9:30am the course is open and traffic-free for up to 12 hours so everyone can Party with Penguins, High Five Huskies, and be congratulated with a warm hug from Polar Bears!

Famous faces who have supported previous races include five-time Olympian Jo Pavey MBE; Vancouver Winter Olympics skeleton gold medallist Amy Williams MBE; England footballer Emile Heskey; TV presenter and comedian Joel Dommett; TV presenter and motivational speaker Victoria Milligan and BBC News presenters Sophie Raworth and Louise Minchin.
