Now hailed the capital’s largest 10K, the bustling course is packed with atmosphere

Since the moment I crossed the finish line in February 2016, I eagerly awaited the date for the return of the Cancer Research UK London Winter Run for 2017. And that date was Sunday 5 February. The annual 10K run returned for its third year, boasting a record 16,500 runners on the start line.

With start times ranging between 9am and 10:30am, it felt like we were granted a lie-in for this Sunday morning race. Arriving at Leicester Square underground station at 9:30am, the race village was just a 10-minute stroll away, and on that walk we got to see the first wave set off for the morning. The baggage tents were easy to find and the queues were minimal; having had a dilemma fitting everything into the blue bags, we were ushered to a specific bag-drop queue for oversized bags, which thankfully had no queue whatsoever. There were plenty of Portaloos available with little or no queues too – quite the rarity at popular city races such as this one.
