What not to miss this Sunday

It’s our 5th event this February and we’ve pulled out 5 things not to miss at the Cancer Research UK London Winter Run 10k 2019 to celebrate this milestone.

Spot the Giant Polar Bear

When we say giant, we mean giant! Nicknamed Clawed Nelson you will not have trouble spotting this polar bear. Clawed will be at the start and finish ready for you to have a snap or two with him. A great memory of what will be a terrific day to share with your friends and family remember #winterrun may get you shortlisted for a prize ????

Penguin Party

It’s back for a fifth time. As you run through the closed roads of central London with famous land marks passing you by, look out for our notorious and riotous penguin party.

See your spirits lifted at the 7k mark, also a fantastic spot for spectators, you may even want to stop to have a boogie with them but remember to reserve some energy for the rest of your run!

Polar Bear Hugs

We like to give you the best experience and our traditional polar bear hugs will once again be available on tap at the finish. The moment you’ve been waiting for, second to receiving your medal of course, fall into the arms of a soft furry polar bear for that much needed celebratory hug. You did it!

Mind the gap

Did you know there are five tube stations on the London Winter Run route! Can you name them all?

The oldest dates as far back as 1871, one saw the filming of James Bond’s Skyfall, and two of our stations opened on the same day, 30th July 1900.

Tick them off as your make your way around the route. [Answers at the bottom of the page]

Après Ski party

After you’ve finished your run and picked up the bling that is the medal you can head over to our Après Ski party taking place on the steps at Trafalgar Square. Enjoy live music, amongst other fabulous treats to celebrate your awesome achievement and our 5th milestone. This is a first for the Cancer Research UK London Winter Run – you most definitely will not want to miss this!

This is just a tease, maybe, just maybe we’ll let you in on a few more things happening on the big day. We are so excited we could probably burst!

Looking forward to seeing you on the 3rd February ????
