Join the British Heart Foundation (BHF) and come and experience London’s longest standing jog event on Wednesday 8th May 2013. Entries for the Tower of London Run are now open, so sign up now to make sure you don’t miss out.
Back for its 35th year, this is an event not to be missed, giving runners the unique opportunity to run around a world heritage site. The 1km route is all on grass and although mainly flat can be slightly uneven in parts.
This event offers the unique opportunity to actually go down into the moat of the Tower of London. Participants can set their own pace and distance, 1-10km, and experience this incredible event with their friends, family or colleagues.
Kate Glover, Regional Event Organiser for the BHF, said: “We’re very excited about this year’s Tower of London Run, especially as it has reached this fantastic 35 year milestone. It is such a huge achievement and thanks to all of the people that have taken part over the years.
“This year we are hoping to see more than 1700 people take part and raise £75,000 to help fight heart disease. A BHF event is the perfect way to help the nation’s heart charity save lives and improve your own heart health.”
Entry fees are £12 for adults £6 for children. On the day entries are also available at £20 for adults and £10 for children. The BHF is urgently appealing to participants to raise as much sponsorship money as they can as the entry fee purely goes towards the cost of running the event safely.
If you are interested in signing up and taking part you can call the events team on 0845 130 8663 or register online at bhf.org.uk/toweroflondonrun you can also email the events team on firstname.lastname@example.org
