Adidas City Run - Fulham 10K
"The second edition of London’s flattest 10K is returning to Fulham on Sunday November 17, providing you with an amazing opportunity to cap off an epic year of running and grab a late season PB.
The inaugural Fulham 10K was a major sell-out, providing an epic finale to the 2018 adidas City Runs series. Whether you’re going for the win or just want to finish with a smile, the Fulham 10K’s flat and fast course provides you with the best possible chance of achieving your goals."
Starting on the iconic New Kings Road, the Fulham 10K route will take you on an unforgettable journey through one of London’s most prestigious postcodes on flat, wide roads.
From picturesque Parsons Green through to the bustling Fulham Road – including a loop around the world famous Stamford Bridge stadium, home to Chelsea FC – the Fulham 10K route showcases the very best of this stunning part of the capital.
Once you cross the finish line with a hard earned medal around your neck, you’ll head into our Event Village located on Eel Brook Common where you’ll be able to soak up the post run vibes and recover with some free yoga and massage.

The best race in London
By far the best organised event I’ve attended
The racing tee was of great quality and I liked the fact it had the bib number on it.
The venue was easy to get to and bag drop was quick and easy. They also had a small changing room/tent which was a neat touch.
The route was interesting and entertainment during the race was perfect.
The medal is really neat.
Would highly recommend this race.
Good event - a bit pricey!
The packs are sent in the post in advance and the t-shirt is good quality. There's no running number as this is printed on your t-shirt, which is novel.
Organisation is good. There is a bit of standing around in pens before the start and, if it's raining, you get very cold and wet.
Very zig-zaggy but completely flat; it does get a bit tiring going around corners constantly. There were a lot of people running very 'erratically' and this can be annoying - you might get bumped into as people jump around trying to cut corners. The route is slightly congested in places.
The 'after party' at the end of the race is great, with plenty on offer to do post-race. Having the medal handed to you by elite Adidas runners was a nice touch!
The medal is huge and heavy. Almost unnecessarily so. City runs are expensive compared to other 10kms races (even others in the city); you do get the Adidas t-shirt, which is nice and makes a change, but the medal is too large/heavy and could be made smaller to save a few quid.
Would I do it again? Yes, probably.
