Vitality Westminster Mile returns

Vitality Westminster Mile back in London for 2022 – along with Vitality London 10,000

We’re delighted to announce the Vitality Westminster Mile and Vitality London 10,000 return to their traditional iconic central London locations on the early May Bank Holiday weekend in 2022 after more than 1,000 days away due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Chance to run a mile from The Mall

The Vitality Westminster Mile, which starts on The Mall, circles St James’s Park and finishes in front of Buckingham Palace, will take place on Sunday 1 May 2022.

Staged in partnership with Westminster City Council, the event is for all ages and abilities with mile events for families, adults, parkrun, Special Olympics and many more. Entries are now open and cost just £8 for adults and £6 for 12- to 18-year-olds. Children aged 11 and under can take part for free!

A Bank Holiday Weekend to remember

The Vitality London 10,000 will take place the following day on Bank Holiday Monday 2 May. The start will be on The Mall and the stunning course goes out through Westminster into the City of London, taking in some of London’s most iconic landmarks including Admiralty Arch, St Paul’s Cathedral, Mansion House, the Bank of England, the Old Bailey, Somerset House, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament before finishing in front of Buckingham Palace.

Entries are open now and cost £39 (£2 reduction for members of UKA athletics clubs). Every finisher receives a souvenir medal and a New Balance technical T-shirt (retail value £35).

The virtual Vitality London 10,000 also returns in 2022, offering participants across the UK and around the world the chance to complete the event on the course of their choice at any time during the week from Saturday 30 April to Sunday 8 May. See here for more details.

Two inspirational events

Hugh Brasher, Event Director for London Marathon Events, said: “It is wonderful to be bringing these two inspirational events back to the streets of London for the first time since 2019. The Vitality Westminster Mile gives thousands of families and children the chance to experience running the most iconic mile in the world and the Vitality London 10,000 offers an amazing opportunity to run past some of the capital’s greatest landmarks and finish in front of Buckingham Palace.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has had a terrible impact on children’s activity levels and health, which makes it so important that events as inspirational as the Vitality Westminster Mile return. We would like to thank Westminster City Council, The Royal Parks, the City of London, Transport for London and our other stakeholders for their support in bringing back these great events.”
