About this event

The City and Wharf come head to head for this 5k run challenge

It’s time to get running for your company, for your profession, and for your location!! This event is all about bringing the 2 major London business districts head to head to see which one will get the most runners, raise the most money and which location has the fastest profession and fastest company!

Enter individually and run for your location and company or get a corporate team together. Teams can be any size from 4 upwards. Results will be grouped in to teams of 4 and these are sorted by team runners crossing the finish line so the first 4 team runners go in to team 1 and the next 4 team 2 and so on. These will also be split as male, female and mixed!

Results also include individual placings and combined City and Wharf average times to find out the fastest location! Send out the challenge to your rivals in the City or Wharf and get ready for this fantastic event! If you need more info about team entries please email us at info@cityvwharf.com

Every entrant receives full race chip timing, an awesome CityvWharf Medal, snacks and drinks on the day and free photos to download!

Can I run with a buggy?

Yes this is typically ok for most locations however please check the run route course as some locations can be a mix of path, trail, grass so not always suitable for running with a buggy. Also please try and stay to the left as much as possible to give room for other runners.
