Free t-shirt and Campus Games points up for grabs! 

Race details

Date: Saturday 16 November 2019
Start time: 9am
Start/finish line: Mile End Park (course details)

This is a great opportunity for everyone in Queen Mary to come together and play a role in our local community. It doesn't matter whether you run, jog or walk, as long as you take part – and whatever speed you go at, you're still likely to beat me round the course! See you at the start line.
— Colin Bailey, Principal
