New for 2020, Project 1K was created to provide 1,000 runners with the opportunity to experience a truly unforgettable year of running with adidas City Runs.

Unfortunately, following the cancellation of the Shoreditch 10K and the Fulham 10K, it is no longer possible to deliver Project 1K this year. This means we will be unable to provide our Project 1K entrants with their exclusive gold medal at the Islington Half & 10K.

If you signed up to Project 1K, you should have received an email outlining the options available to you in regards to your Shoreditch and Fulham entries. For more information please email

Project 1K FAQs


Will Project 1K runners start at the front of the race?

Due to demand, we have expanded the availability of our event series option from 500 to 1,000 runners. For operational reasons, this means that Project 1K runners won’t be starting at the front of each event.

Will Project 1K runners still receive a t-shirt for each event?

Yes! Project 1K runners will receive (and must wear) each event specific t-shirt which will be sent to them in advance of each event.

When will Project 1K runners receive their gold medal & exclusive series t-shirt?

All Project 1K runners will receive their gold medal and exclusive series t-shirt after the final run in the series – Islington Half and 10K!
