About the Bupa London 10k

The Bupa London 10,000 10k is presented by the London Marathon and is run on the course used for the 2012 Olympic Marathons. 

The BUPA London 10,000 will take place at 10.00am on Sunday May 25 2014. It starts and finishes in St James’s Park and uses Green Park as its assembly area.

The Race starts (and finishes) in The Mall and follows a clockwise route around the City of Westminster and the City of London. Runners pass many of London’s famous sights including, Admiralty Arch, Nelson’s Column, St Paul’s Cathedral,  Mansion House, Bank of England, Leadenhall Market, The Monument, Millennium Bridge, Tate Gallery, Cleopatra’s Needle, London Eye, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey.
