  2. The London 10,000 - who's in action?

    Mo Farah defends his title in London's premier 10km road race. The four-time Olympic champion is the course record holder and has won in five of his previous six attempts.

    Farah, who came fifth in the London Marathon last month, will face stiff competition from two-time winner Andy Butchart and Nick Goolab - the fastest man over the distance in the UK this year with a time of 28 minutes and 22 seconds.

    Steph Twell is the defending women's champion and comes into the 2019 race in excellent form having set a new personal best over the distance in Brighton in April.

    A record number of more than 17,000 participants will run on a course which passes iconic landmarks such as Nelson's Column, St Paul's Cathedral, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey before finishing opposite Buckingham Palace.

    The London 10,000 also incorporates the British Athletics 10km Championships for men and women.

    Get Inspired


    You might want to be the next Mo Farah, or just want to get fit and see how well you can do - either way, athletics can be the sport for you.

    It includes a huge variety of disciplines, so whether you want to run, jump or throw you can find an activity that suits you.

    Going long requires stamina and mental toughness. On the track, the 5,000m and 10,000m can become a real mind game of tactics, while the marathon - a 26.2-mile course outside the confines of an athletics stadium - is athletics' ultimate test of mental and physical endurance.

    Thousands of people take part in 10k races, half marathons and marathons every year, take a look on the Run Britain website for more.
