The Cancer Research UK London Winter Run is a 10K challenge through the heart of the capital, passing world-famous landmarks, and instantly recognisable venues.
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!
Cancer Research UK has been the official charity of the London Winter Run since its first year, in 2015. Together, nearly £4.5 million has been raised to help fund life-saving work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
This event welcomes runners and walkers of all abilities! Although there is no cut off time, roads will be reopened approximately 3 hours after the start of the event, so it is recommended you aim to finish by then.
Every year participants get the chance to run through the heart of London, with the roads closed exclusively for the event.
The 2024 route will be revealed very soon and promises to be full of snowy surprises. Picture high-fiving huskies, partying penguins, and huggable polar bears. If you’re lucky you may even spot a legendary yeti or two!
This event is constantly striving to improve sustainability to reduce the impact on the environment.
The approach is to ensure that the organisers and the events are run as sustainably as possible to minimise their impact on the planet with the familiar 'reduce, re-use and recycle' ethos at the forefront.
Here are the areas of progress made so far:
Cancer Research UK has been the official charity partner of the London Winter Run since it’s first year, in 2015.
Together, nearly £5.2 million has been raised to help fund life-saving work into the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer.

Like the name of the race suggested, there was a winter theme. Support came from polar bears, penguins, and wolves to high five along the way around. Furthermore, in several places along the route, there were, choirs singing, bands and buskers playing. Duncan
A great race for a great cause. Very well organised and great to have a road race through central London. Lots of people of all abilities taking part which is great. Maxwell
What an amazing race! Friendly, fast and fantastic fun. Great support from the crowds, marshalls and winter 'Animals'. Lovely medal and real 'all day event' with post race bands and entertainment. Can't wait for next year's race. Claire
This has become a real social race for us, as we run in a group and chat all the way round. Matt
