About River Run
These two routes start and finish in Paternoster Square in the heart of the City of London, near St Paul’s Cathedral. Both courses take runners down to the River Thames and along Victoria Embankment. At this point the 5k runners cross the river at Waterloo Bridge, whilst the 10k runners go all the way down to Westminster Bridge and run past Big Ben. Both routes take in the beautiful South Bank, where the 5k runners cross back over at the Tate Modern and the 10k runners carry on to Tower Bridge!
Over 43,000 men are diagnosed every year in the UK with testicular, prostate and penile cancer. Orchid is the UK’s leading charity working in the area of male-specific cancers and provides support to people affected by or interested in these cancers through funding a world-class research programme, awareness and education campaigns and a range of vital support services. These services include Male Cancer Information Nurse Specialists, a freephone National Male Cancer Helpline and a portfolio of publications including a schools resource pack. However, there is still more work to be done and demand for these services is increasing year on year. The charity relies entirely on voluntary income to meet its commitments.
Meeting point: Paternoster Square (outside St Pauls)
Timing: 5.30-7.30 pm
