The first-ever Bupa Westminster Mile gives runners of all ages and abilities the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of their Olympic and Paralympic heroes.

The series of one-mile races around the edge of St James’s Park is being organised by Westminster City Council in partnership with the London Marathon Trust and Bupa, forming part of the council’s long-term Olympic and Paralympic legacy.

The all-inclusive event starts on the Mall, the site of the London Marathon finish line as well as some of the most memorable moments from last summer’s Games. The route takes entrants past landmarks including Horse Guards Parade and Wellington Barracks before finishing outside Buckingham Palace.

Bupa Westminster Mile ambassador David Weir, one of Britain’s most decorated athletes, said earlier this year events like this are needed to inspire people to get involved in sport.

On the day people will be sharing the course with some the top athletics stars in the UK with the event promising to showcase Britain at its best. There are also race categories for junior and senior wheelchair users as well as visually impaired athletes in the T11-13 categories.
