The Shoreditch 10K is set to become one of the most eagerly anticipated events on the running calendar in the heart of one of London’s most vibrant boroughs. Due to the scale and numbers participating in the Shoreditch 10K, it will be necessary to implement road closures across the full 10KM route to facilitate the safe passage of the participants. Please be aware that the road closures could impact your travel arrangements on that day.
