Background information:

Over 25,000 runners including top athletes and celebrity runners run in the British 10k London Run each year, with approximately 40,000 spectators lining the course. There is a continued strong support for the hundreds of charities involved from all over Great Britain and the day continues to be a great success.
The race route through the heart of this historic capital city is unrivalled anywhere in the world and takes runners past many of the iconic and most world renowned sights that the great city of London has to offer.
In 2012 much of the course was the same as the route used for the men's and women's Olympic marathon courses. The race starts on Piccadilly at Hyde Park Corner with Wellington Arch as the backdrop, which is where there's a cluster of London's 5 star hotels .
The British 10K route then runs down Piccadilly to the world famous Ritz hotel, turns right down St James's street to St James's Palace, the former offical london residence of H.R.H. the Prince Of Wales and Princes Harry and William. The course turns left on Pall Mall toward Trafalgar Square where runners pass Nelson's Column and the National Gallery, as well as passing in front of Admiralty Arch before proceeding down Northumberland Avenue towards the river Thames.
Runners then turn left on Victoria Embankment towards the magnificent St Paul's Cathedral before returning back along the river Thames with the classic Tower Bridge as backdrop, passing Tate Modern and the unique London Eye on the opposite bank. Upon reaching the world's most famous clock, Big Ben, the course turns left over Westminster Bridge before doing a U turn in front of the London Eye and heading back to the British Houses Of Parliament.
Runners will then pass around Parliament Square in front of the main entrance of historic Westminster Abbey, where Prince William married Kate Middleton on the 29th April, 2011.  Runners will then loop around Parliament Square before turning left into the finishing straight in Whitehall, which is the portal of British government. After passing the entrance to Downing Street, the official London residence of British Prime Ministers, the finish line is located north of the Cenotaph (the national monument to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country) at the junction of Royal Horseguards Arch and Banqueting House on Whitehall.
Every year hundreds of charities benefit from the millions of pounds raised by runners raising sponsorship via Justgiving for their chosen cause by taking part in the British 10K London Run. In addition to the hundreds of charities involved there are also corporate teams raising money for charities in the Corporate Team Challenge and thousands of individual runners who also raise funds for charities who may not be directly involved in the race...
