Regional Walks take place in Guildford, Epsom, Reading, Brighton, Hastings, Chichester, Tunbridge Wells and Eastbourne. Each walk is 10km and takes [British 10k 2018] place ‘after work’ at approximately 5:00 pm.
British 10k: Sunday 15th July
We have 20 places for the British 10k. This wonderful event consistently draws a large crowd, attracting both new and seasoned runners with its iconic route. You will pass numerous London landmarks including the London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. This event is great to do as a first time race or for the seasoned runner who enjoys the buzz of big events.
We do not charge an entry fee to be part of our group but we do ask that all runners commit to raising at least £200 to cover the cost of these. Full details and sign up form are on our website.

Looking for something else?
We try to organise a wide range of events to appeal to as many people as possible, but if there’s something else you’d like to organise yourself or have an event you are already signed up to and would like to raise funds for LLST, we’d be thrilled to hear from you. Already, Mary Prescott at BPP is organising a skydive for us on April 21st. If you’d like to join her, let us know and we’ll put you in touch. Last year we were delighted to receive donations following individuals pursuits and activities – and we’d love to help promote your efforts. Just contact us to let us know your plans.
