The 2009 Asics British 10k London Run

Last year's Asics British 10k London Run attracted 26,000 runners from all over the world, including Olympic and World Champions, plus TV personalities and celebrities running in support of their chosen charities.

The official charity for the 2009 British 10k is the Rainbow Trust, which offers practical and emotional support to families who have children with terminal or life-threatening illnesses.

As well as individuals running for charity, there is also the opportunity for corporate teams to enter in the Great City of London's Corporate Team Division.

The team earning the most for charity will win the British Golden Jubilee Corporate Team Charity Shield to keep for one year.

The route of the 10k run passes most of the sites of London's s historic city centre with the race starting in Piccadilly, taking in Pall Mall and Trafalgar Square, heading past St Paul's to Tower Bridge and on past the Tate Modern Art Gallery, to finish in Whitehall. It's a great way to see most of London as a tourist!

There are 240 museums in London as well as countless art galleries, theatres, restaurants and nightclubs - most of which are in the West End. There is plenty to keep both runners and supporters well entertained.

Reading Half Marathon

Since its debut, the Reading Half Marathon has laid its main claim to fame to introducing wheelchair athletes to participation in marathons. This is something the London Marathon adopted with the help of the Reading Half Marathon organisers.

In 2008, course records were broken by both the male and female winners and in latter years, the Reading Half Marathon has succeeded in attracting top athletes and many runners from overseas.

The course will take the same route as in 2008, starting and finishing at the Madjeski Stadium in Green Park. The half marathon, which attracts upwards of 10,000 participants, is supported by the Green Park Challenge which is a 2.8km run open to the whole family.

For those who like to share the load, there is the Osborne Clarke Business Challenge, which encourages work colleagues to run together in a relay race. Teams of four are required.
