Run the Bridges Handicap Race

You can achieve a lot in your lunchtime, and since July 1977 keen types have been meeting in front of St Thomas' Hospital on Albert Embankment by by Westminster Bridge for the Bridges Race, a timed 2.3 mile handicap run which takes in both Vauxhall and Lambeth Bridges over usually less than half an hour. The race now takes place monthly on the second Wednesday on each month and today is the day.

The race is organised by volunteers, and all you have to do if you want to take part is contact the organisers before 11.45am on the day in question with your name, date of birth, estimated time and club (or none) and assuming they're not oversubscribed that month (it's hard to cope with more than 30 runners so there's a waiting list) they'll organise you a number and provisional handicap and you're in.
