    British 10k London Run 2015

    Take part in the Vitality British 10k London Run on Sunday 12th July and take in some of London's iconic landmarks along the way - starting at Hyde Park Corner, the route takes you past Trafalgar Square and St Paul's Cathedral to Tower Bridge, before returning alongside the River Thames.

    The 10k route really does encompass everything that is great about London and is ideal both for those taking on their first running event, and experienced runners looking for that PB. This year we have 5 guaranteed charity places available for the run – all you need to do is pay the registration fee (£25) and pledge to raise the minimum sponsorship amount (£250) for Family Lives.

    Once registered you'll receive a full fundraising pack which includes your free Family Lives t-shirt/running vest, sponsorship forms plus further advice and materials on fundraising and the work of the charity.

    To register please email Emily Lee at emilyl@familylives.org.uk

    Further information about the race can be found here.

    Deadline for entries is 1st July.

    Please give what you can via our Just Giving page.
