London

The iconic British 10K, presented by ASICS, returns to the streets of Westminster on Sunday 21st July 2019. It is the ultimate tour of Central London, where runners pass by iconic landmarks including Trafalgar Square, the Embankment, Big Ben and more, on closed roads AND the Pink Ribbon Foundation is delighted to announce that it has once again secured a limited number of places.

This headline running event will include a British Street Party – with a twist! In addition to a flat, fast 10K past London’s famed sites, there will be music at every kilometre encouraging runners to pound the streets to the beat. All abilities are represented – the British 10k London is popular with both seasoned runners and those who are running a 10k race for the first time.

About the Pink Ribbon Foundation
The Pink Ribbon Foundation (Reg. Charity No. 1080839) is a grant making trust with a mission to fund projects and provide financial support to UK charities which relieve the needs of people who are suffering from, or who have been affected by breast cancer or who work to advance the understanding of breast cancer, its early detection and treatment. The Pink Ribbon Foundation has very little infrastructure. It relies on the hard work given by Trustees, interested parties and its Patrons. This is done in order to maximise the amount, which goes to the charities that benefit from the funds raised. More information can be found at www.pinkribbonfoundation.org.uk
