    Nearest stations: St James’ Park (District/ Circle) 0.3 miles

    Turn right on to Broadway and carry straight on to Tothill Street. Turn left on to Storey’s Gate. Turn left on to Great George Street and the cheer point/ reception will be just on your right

    If you have your own place in the race, either through the ballot or through a good for age time we would love to have you running for the MS Society. You will get all the benefits of being an MS Society runner but you won't have a minimum sponsorship target to meet.
