The London Community Runs are are series of events open to everyone. They are hosted hosted by the London Runner Distance Club and supported by Runners' Choice London. Runners can use these events however they wish: as an easy run, a moderately hard workout, or an all-out race effort.
The format is simple: Register for the event online, Run in the Community event, and then Relax and socialize with other members of the London running community post-race (and perhaps win some draw prizes!). This is a simple, grass roots series; times will be recorded and draw prizes will be distributed after the last participant has finished.
