Roads reopening

We want every runner to be able to complete the Vitality London 10,000. However, we are tasked to reopen the roads by 14:00.

In order for the roads to be cleared ready for reopening, all participants must meet the two course cut-off times shown in the table above. Race marshals will be present to advise participants when the cut-off times are approaching and ask them to move onto the pavement if required. The Finish Line will be in place and able to give you an official finish time until 13:20.

Official photos

Keep your eye out for our official photographers on the course and as you cross the Finish Line. Give them a smile and a wave if you can because it will help make your official photos look even more amazing.  

All of your photos will be available 24–48 hours after Race Day at 


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