If you would like to undergo a fitness challenge whilst raising money for charity, a 10k race in London is a great way to do so. 10k (or 6 miles) is a good distance for experienced runners to test their speed over a longer distance and is also a realistic distance for less experienced runners to give themselves a real challenge. Ready below for some of the fantastic 10k runs happening in London that you could take part in. We would love for Alder Hey Children’s Charity to be your chosen charity and you can find out more about fundraising for Alder Hey whilst running, by clicking here. Happy running!
