Caudwell Children, the national charity that provides practical and emotional support to disabled children and their families, has announced that has a limited number of reduced priced charity places available for the Vitality London 10,000.

Not only that the charity is also offering a Two for One Valentines registration fee, from Sunday 10th – 17th February, 2019, to incentivise couples to register together.

The annual road running 10k event takes place on bank holiday Monday 27th May, 2019, and will see thousands of runners pounding the streets around some of the most famous sights in London.

Starting on The Mall and finishing on Spur Road opposite Buckingham Palace, participants follow a clockwise route around the City of Westminster and the City of London.

Hannah Boote, challenge and events coordinator at Caudwell Children, says it’s a fantastic run around historic London. As she explained: “Runners will make their way through Admiralty Arch before passing Nelson’s Column, St Pauls Cathedral, Mansion House, the Bank of England, the Old Bailey, Somerset House, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey.”

Established in 2008 the race has become one of the most popular mass participation 10k runs in the UK, thanks to the patronage of the double Olympic, World and European gold medallist, Mo Farah.

“He dominated the British 10K Championships, which features this race, and he’s now won the Vitality London on six occasions between 2009 and 2018,” continued Hannah, “so this is a great opportunity to run in his footsteps.”

Runners can save £10 by securing a Caudwell Children charity place for just £25, with a fundraising target of £150. If you sign up as part of the charity’s Valentines offer registration will cost just £25 per couple.

Runners will benefit from an enthusiastic crowd of thousands lining the streets of London to cheer them on.

Hannah says that those who run on behalf of Caudwell Children will have an even greater sense of achievement when they complete the race.  As she concluded: “Raising funds to help Caudwell Children to deliver therapies, treatments, specialist equipment and fully supported holidays to the 800,000 disabled children living in the UK, will be a fitting legacy for their lung busting efforts.”
