Runners Warming To Winter Run

London Winter Run logo

Over 10,000 have already signed up for next year’s Cancer Research UK London Winter Run. This 10k event on the closed roads of Central London on 31 January, invites runners to maintain or buidl fitness over the winter months and raise money for Cancer Research UK.

On arrival, runners and spectators will be greeted by friendly snowmen equipped with jetpack snow machines blasting a snowfall over the event village for a special wintery welcome.

Once the runners are in position, Nuffield Health will host a winter themed warm up to get the blood pumping and the muscles prepped, before a Snow Blast Off shooting clouds of CO2 gas into the air marks the start of the 2016 Cancer Research UK Winter Run.

On the 10k course, runners will pass iconic landmarks such as St Paul’s Cathedral and Trafalgar Square. Participants will pass through a Giant Snow Zone en route, where they will be covered head to toe in snowflakes so even if it doesn’t actually snow this year the Cancer Research UK London Winter Run will guarantee a winter wonderland.

On the way round the spectacular course runners can join in with the brand new Penguin Party. The fun loving penguins will encourage and motivate runners, and the party is the perfect spot for spectators to enjoy music and see their friends and family pass by. 

The popular Polar Bears will be back, encouraging people over the finish line with a much needed warming hug. Not only will runners get a comforting Polar Bear cuddle, all finishers will also receive a memorable winter medal to mark their achievement.
