Hi there

News - Yetis Found At London Winter Run 

More than 16,500 runners went in search of the mythical Abominable Snowman at the Cancer Research UK London Winter Run 10k on Sunday (4 February). Arctic conditions in the capital added some authenticity to the hunt but a great big sign reading Yeti Cave on The Strand finally ended one of the greatest mysteries of our time.
