About the event

To celebrate 10 years of the event, kids go free, and it’ll be the biggest year yet! Over the past 10 years, this race has raised more than £5 million for GOSH and has made a massive difference to the lives of so many children, and it’s all thanks to the amazing people who take part every year.


The 5-kilometre track runs on the paved pathways in and around the iconic Hyde Park, which always looks beautiful in the autumn. Remember to dress accordingly!


Everyone is welcome to get involved, no matter your age or ability, with babies in buggies, wheelchair-racers and grandparents all doing their bit to help make a difference. You can even bring your dog along! Everyone will receive a race pack, including a free T-shirt, and all children will be given a medal and a goody bag after participating. They'll love taking their medal to school and telling everyone about this cool race they took part in over the weekend.


Festivities start at 10am and run throughout the day after the race - the party’s not over when you hit the finish line! There will be refreshments on site for you to enjoy, plus a climbing wall, bubble station, music, face-painting and everything in between.


Your registration fee helps immensely but additional fundraising is always encouraged and appreciated. If you’re interested in taking part in this epic charity event, check out the full details on the Great Ormond Street website (link below).
