Sight Run Series - Central London

Paternoster Square, London

Organiser's Description

Whether you’re a couch potato or a seasoned runner...Beat your own personal best this January with Blind Veterans UK.

Join us for a 5K or 10K chip-timed run through our exclusive Central London route, which takes runners along the Thames towards Westminster, crossing the river then back along south bank, across Tower Bridge and back up to St Pauls, with the finish line at Paternoster Square.

Funds raised will go toward helping ex-Service men and women rebuild their lives after sight loss. Since 1915, Blind Veterans UK have been providing rehabilitation, training, practical advice and emotional support to tens of thousands of blind veterans.

Great 10k run......

Great 10k run, seeing the sights of London at night!

The route was good although when finished I realised that I’d actually run nearly 1mile more than I needed.
The route needed to be more clearly marked and with more Marshall’s directing.

That said, I was pleased with the start and finish organisation, (from registration, to warm up with Fitness first, to the medals and goodie bags).
Thank you to the organisers, veterans, and supporters.

Thank you so much for your feedback! We are glad to hear you enjoyed seeing the sights of London at night. Thank you also for your feedback about the signage and marshalls, we apologise for this and agree that the route should have been clearer. We understand that unfortunately a number of our signs had been taken down, but regardless we certainly have taken this feedback on board.

We're glad you enjoyed the start and finish, and thank you so much for your support of Blind Veterans UK!
