The City of London Mile race, organised by Run Fast Sports Management and The Running Works, will take place in June 2018 in the heart of the capital’s financial district. Starting outside St Paul’s Cathedral it takes in some of the most famous and historic landmarks the city has to offer and includes part of the 2017 London World Championships Marathon course.

With six races for all ages and abilities the City of London Mile is a truly inclusive and exciting race for all to enjoy. As a personal challenge or an opportunity to raise money for charity it is a chance to spend a great day in the City with family and friends.

Once you’ve raced your own Mile you can take in the sights and watch the elites go head-to-head. The City of London Mile attracts some of the world’s best athletes competing in the Annual International Mile Race.

While we are committed to free entry for all those who wish to participate, we are now looking to YOU to help support the race for 2018. All support, regardless of amount, is significant, and we’ve got some great giveaways at each support level.  Funders at £5 and above will have their names on our Mile Wall of Fame in The Running Works. Thank you and see you in June 2018!
