Vitality London 10,000

London Marathon events have announced that the 2021 Vitality 10,000 event has been postponed. The organisers are working hard to secure a new date for the event and we will have an update on this soon.

We will be contacting all participants who were taking part on behalf of Battersea, over the coming days. We know how disappointing this will be for our participants who have trained so hard and would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has chosen to take part for Battersea and raise vital funds for our dogs and cats. We are incredibly grateful for your support.

If you’re looking to take on a running challenge but not yet ready for a half marathon or full marathon, the Vitality London 10,000 is the one for you. It’s one of the UK’s most popular 10k runs, and the route features some of London’s most famous sights.

The race begins on The Mall, goes through Admiralty Arch and passes Nelson’s Column, St Paul’s Cathedral, Mansion House, the Bank of England, the Old Bailey, Somerset House, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey before the finish line in front of Buckingham Palace.
