The Virgin Sports Westminster - British 10K is the UK’s most prestigious and sought-after 10K road race through the heart of central London.

Starting on Piccadilly outside The Cavalry & Guards Club on Hyde Park corner, runners will make their way past huge crowds and London landmarks including the London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. The route proves hugely popular with both new and seasoned runners, attracted by the chance to run one of the most unique routes in the world and be spurred on by tens of thousands of spectators lining the route from start to finish.

Social media

Social media is great for telling your friends and family about your fundraising challenge. If you’re fundraising online, how about using Facebook to share your fundraising page link, tweet to update on your training progress or capture those challenging early starts and the excitement on the day on Instagram.

Make sure to be persistent with asking for donations – try posting at different times of the day and just before and after your fundraising event.

Your workplace or school

Your workplace or school are ideal places to raise money. Let your colleagues or classmates know about your fundraising challenge, put up posters of you training and talk about the Lymphoma Association. Cake sales always go down a treat – get baking and make sure to bring a sponsorship form along to work with you.

Your local club or sports centre

Your local club or sports centre are other great places to promote your fundraising event and raise money. Take along a sponsorship form and tell your group about what you’re getting up to.

How do I train for this event?

Running training requires lots of hard work and mental toughness, as well as things like the right kit, but it will be worth all the effort in the end. The better prepared and fitter you are, the more you will get out of your running challenge on the day. Read our top 10 tips on running training (PDF).
