About the event
The Cancer Research UK London Winter Run is a ten kilometre challenge through the heart of the capital.
You will pass live music performances, encounter larger-than-life winter characters, and see world famous landmarks. It’s an unforgettable journey for runners of all abilities. Many choose to run only part of the route, walking at other points. Since its first edition in 2015 it 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.
After an amazing event in 2023 with over 15,000 taking part, the next edition will take place on Sunday 25th February 2024. You can expect many of your favourite features and creatures to return, plus some new surprises!
