The Course

The Vitality London 10,000 course is ideal for spectators. Runners run along the Strand twice, at 1km and then again at 8km, making this a great place to watch the action.

The course passes many of London’s famous sights including Admiralty Arch, Nelson’s Column, St Paul’s Cathedral, Mansion House, the Bank of England, the Old Bailey, Somerset House, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey.

Getting there

As with runners, we do not recommend driving; many roads will be closed from 08:00 due to the event, and parking in the area will be difficult.

Full details of road closures related to the 2017 event will be available closer to Race Day.

A number of Tube stations offer excellent access to different sections of the course. Visit www.tfl.gov.uk for up-to-date information on engineering works and to plan your journey accordingly.

Meet and Greet

The Meet and Greet area is located within Green Park and is where runners will retrieve any baggage they handed in at the assembly area before the start of the race. This is the recommended place to meet any friends or relatives who ran the Vitality London 10,000.

A-Z signs demarcate the area, so remember to agree a letter in advance where you intend to meet.
