Thamesmead Virtual 5km & 10km - Thamesmead Virtual 5km

We've made the annual Thamesmead 5km race Virtual to enable as many people to participate as possible in a socially distanced and safe way. What's more, we are also hosting a 10km race so you can sign up to that too. You can run one of our pre-selected routes, or create and run your own, it's completely up to you. The main race day is SATURDAY 19TH SEPTEMBER 2020 so that's when you may see most runners out running it. However, you do not have to run that day, you can run any day until Saturday 18th October 2020.
How to Play:
Register your place for the 5km, 10km or both on Run Britain. Record your 5km run on a device of your choice (eg Garmin, Strava, MapMyRun, Apple etc) and send us your evidence to If you do not have a smart phone, email us a before and after photo as well as your distance, the date, time and duration of your run. You can run it more than once if looking for a BP, but you only need to submit us your best result.

All participants will be posted a bespoke, newly designed, 2020 medal and we aim to compile results into a table for runners to check.
