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 race saw 6,103 finishers, a figure that increased in each of the next six editions and had almost doubled by the time 12,133 runners crossed the Finish Line in 2014.

The 2019 event, the last to take place in London before the Covid-19 pandemic, saw a record 19,465 participants cross the Finish Line behind elites Sir Mo Farah and Steph Twell. The campaign ‘Celebrate You’ was also launched in 2019 and has inspired thousands of participants to run/walk/jog 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 in October 2020, with participants running their own Vitality London 10,000 from home. In 2021, the event returned in-person as part of London Marathon Events’ long-awaited return to mass participation events after the easing of lockdown measures, and took place in the stunning surrounds of Hatfield Park in Hertfordshire.
