About the event

During your run you will pass a number of larger than life winter characters, and live music performances, making this an unforgettable journey for runners of all abilities.
Since its first edition in 2015 in has proved hugely popular, receiving critical acclaim, and even sprouting a special summer edition in 2021.
The event is delivered in partnership with Cancer Research UK, and has already seen over 100,000 people take part and over 4 million raised for life-saving cancer research.
Delighted runners have given the Cancer Research UK London Winter Run incredible reviews, with many returning annually to collect the latest edition of the much acclaimed finisher medal. Due to the pandemic a Virtual Winter Run was held in February 2021, using state-of-the-art technology to track and reward runners with gifts for running and fundraising. It resulted in over 10,000 people taking part, and raising over £800,000 for Cancer Research UK.
The next London event will take place on Sunday 13th February 2022, with many favourite aspects returning, and plenty of new fun. For the first time ever, runners in the London edition will be able to earn virtual and physical rewards throughout their training by using our brand new website (launching soon!).
