Where: Paternoster Square (near St Pauls Cathedral) 

Fundraising: £60 per person 

And to round of the evening, we'll all be heading to a local Pub for a mulled wine or two! 🍻

The route

Starting on the north side of the Millennium Bridge, you will begin by running over the Thames and enjoying the world famous view of Tower Bridge.  The the route then takes you along the historic south embankment, past Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and some of London's oldest pubs,  and the Borough Market area.

You will cross over Southwark Bridge and hug the north embankment running towards the Tower of London. You will return through the City, back over Southwark Bridge and turn right towards St Paul's Cathedral, over Millennium Bridge to the finish line.

On the day

You will need to be at the start at Paternoster Square (near St Pauls Cathedral) by 6pm. This is to ensure you have time to pick up your Santa suit and get to the start line by 6.45pm. 

The check-in desk will be open from 3pm and will be situated to the right of the Starbucks in Paternoster Square.  When you check-in you will be given your free Santa Suit and running number.  Santa Suits are all one-size, but adjustable to fit all.  There is also a bag drop for anyone who needs to leave any coats or bags. 

Join us!  

Get your friends, family, or colleagues together for some festive fun this winter - and help make a real difference to our older neighbours this winter 💙
