Celebrate you, run with us at the Vitality London 10,000

Celebrate you, run with us!

In 2018, the award-winning journalist Bryony Gordon and her friend, mental health campaigner and plus size model Jada Sezer, ran the Virgin Money London Marathon in their underwear to promote body confidence and prove that exercise is for everyone.

Now, Bryony and Jada want to inspire as many people as possible to join their team and sign up to run the 2019 Vitality London 10,000 on bank holiday Monday 27 May.

"We want people to know they are wonderful exactly as they are," says Bryony. "And we want you to come join us, whatever your size, shape, age or body experience.”

You don't have to run in your underwear! Just come along, celebrate yourself and your fellow runners, and have a great time.

Sign up now and join Bryony, Jada and their team of inspirational women on the Start Line. The group includes Loose Women presenter Andrea McLean, The Big C podcast presenters Deborah James and Lauren Mahon, The Scummy Mummies duo of Ellie Gibson and Helen Thorn, The Great British Sewing Bee’s Esme Young, author and podcast host Giovanna Fletcher, activist Nimco Ali and many many more.

Every finisher receives a first-class medal, souvenir New Balance tech T-shirt and free massage at the Vitality Wellness Festival in Green Park after the race.

Entry costs £35, or £33 if you are a member of a UK Athletics affiliated running club.
