Event overview

Founded in 2008, the Vitality London 10,000 has grown each year and is now known as one of the best, and most popular, mass participation 10K events around.

The inaugural event saw 6,103 participants cross the Finish Line, with the following six editions seeing this number continue to increase. In fact, this figure had almost doubled in 2014, when 12,133 runners completed the event.

The 2019 Vitality London 10,000 – the last to take place in the capital before the Covid-19 pandemic – saw a record 19,465 participants cross the Finish Line behind elites Sir Mo Farah and Steph Twell. The Celebrate You campaign was also launched in 2019, inspiring thousands of participants to run, jog or walk for their heads and their hearts.

After the in-person event in London was postponed in early 2020, the event went virtual and took place instead in October 2020, with participants running their own Vitality London 10,000 from home. In 2021, the event returned in-person after the easing of lockdown measures, and took place in the stunning surrounds of Hatfield Park in Hertfordshire.
