2019 sees the 10th anniversary of RBC Race for the Kids. Over the last ten years, the Race has raised more than £5 million for the children and families at Great Ormond Street Hospital. This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support, and this is a chance for you to make a difference.

This year will be our biggest year yet and we're hoping to raise an incredible £1 million for the seriously ill children at Great Ormond Street.

Our family festival and 5K fun run, set among the Autumn leaves of Hyde Park, is the perfect day out for all ages and abilities, and to celebrate the decade, all kids at the 2019 event go free!

Book to confirm your place. You will receive a race pack (including your race day t-shirt) in the post, and on completion of the event, you will receive a medal, and there's a goody bag with lots of surprises for every child taking part.

Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) has been title sponsor of RBC Race for the Kids since 2010 and has raised more than £2.5million for GOSH Charity during that time.
