Vitality London 10,000

Vitality London 10,000 has announced it will not go ahead on 25 May 2020. The event organisers are currently working to secure an alternative date, likely in the autumn.

We know how disappointing this will be for our runners who have trained so hard and would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has chosen to run for Battersea and raise vital funds for our dogs and cats. We’re incredibly grateful for your support. Battersea relies upon donations to raise the vital funds needed to keep our centres running, and now, more than ever, we need the continued support of the public to ensure we can continue to be here for every dog and cat.

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.

Why run for Battersea?

As a Battersea runner you will receive:

  • A bespoke running vest
  • Fundraising tips
  • Fundraising support from start to finish
  • An invitation to our 'meet and greet' event where you will receive a behind the scenes tour of the Home (if you confirm your place before 1st March)
