Join over 3,000 people for an iconic twilight run along the Thames!

Last year Run the River saw 3,000 runners, representing more than 1,000 companies,
run 5k or 10k along the banks of the Thames, raising over £145,000 in essential funds to give every child a brilliant education. Take part in this fantastic sell-out event and
