The Regent's Park June 10k
Get in quick to join us at this beautiful Royal Park, famous for its iconic 10K course and fast times across the board for runners at all levels.
Returning this May and June with COVID-safe measures - including waved arrivals and start times - this is your chance to experience a glorious Royal Park run after a year of solo running. You'll quickly see why more than 100,000 finishers have chosen London's most popular 10K in a park setting, with its beautiful landscape and great race atmosphere.
Running alongside London Zoo, runners will spot camels, giraffes (or even some big cats!); you'll also pass the tranquil boating lake, floral gardens and centuries-old statues and monuments. With the start/finish line situated next to The Broad Walk Cafe, and acres of open space for relaxing and recovering with friends, you'll be able to make a great trip out to celebrate one of your fastest 10K times.
There's no finish line feeling quite like The Regent's Park!
