Join us for this classic race with the Mornington Chasers in London's most popular 10K in a park setting. You'll quickly see why more than 100,000 finishers have chosen The Regent's Park with it's beautiful landscape and great race atmosphere.
Running alongside London Zoo, lucky runners will spot camels, giraffes or even some big cats, while other sections of the course take you past the tranquil boating lake, floral gardens and centuries-old statues and monuments.
With the start/finish line situated next to the Hub - the park's largest cafe and changing facility - 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, accurately recorded using chip-timing on this official UK Athletics licensed and measured course.
There's no finish line feeling quite like The Regent's Park!
