Spot our cheer point

We've been saving our voices to cheer you on and we'd love your friends and family to join us at the ActionAid cheer point! We'll be trying to spot you between mile 18 and 19 at North Colonnade, near Cabot Square, Canary Wharf, and hope to see them there.

Celebrate at our post-race reception

To thank all of our runners we're hosting a post-race reception at the Institute of Directors, which is conveniently located just behind the finish line on Pall Mall.

Waiting for you will be food, refreshments, and a well-deserved massage from one of our sports therapists. We'd love to congratulate you in person so please do come along! We have worked with the venue to ensure Covid safety regulations are in place, and if possible please limit the number of friends and family you bring along to make sure there is enough space for runners. 

Find us at the Institute of Directors

A huge thank you for all of your brilliant fundraising efforts. Your support is making an incredible difference to the lives of women and girls living in poverty. 

See you at the finish line!
