FOUNDING PRINCIPLES As you may already have noticed The British 10k London Run has returned to its core values and heritage. The event's official livery of red, white and blue - the colours of the Union flag - firmly re-established with the founding principle that the event WILL NOT be used as a vehicle to penalise or fleece participating charities, by charging them more than members of the public to take part, regardless of how much they raise, through your hard work and generosity. The result being that more of the money you raise taking part in The British 10k London Run remains with the charity.

make a weekend to remember. These benefits are free of charge - see the enclosed London for Less Guide. NEW WAVE START - NEW START AND FINISH GANTRIES New this year will be the introduction of a wave start system operated on a firstcome, first-served basis upon arrival at the pre-race holding area on Piccadilly. The waves will be operated at approximate 30 second intervals. For the first time in history London’s iconic Routemaster’s will be used as the start and finish gantries see page 29 for details.

NEW BENEFITS - FREE OF CHARGE! For 2013 we have teamed up with Run Coach who will supply free of charge personalised online training programmes through to race day - see website for further details. Also this year a flyer is enclosed which you can use to receive numerous 20% discounts off restaurants, museum entry and historic London landmarks to help

BE PREPARED ON RACE DAY ARRIVE HYDRATED ON RACE DAY WITH A SPRING IN YOUR STEP ON-COURSE WATER STATIONS On course water stations are located at approx 3km, 5km, 7.5km with 330cl bottles and at the finish line with 500cl bottles. See pull-out map, centre spread showing water stations icon.

WARM UP AND COOL DOWN Before the race It’s race day. The adrenaline’s pumping. You’ve trained for this for months. There’s just one last bit of preparation left: your warm up. A proper warm up prepares your body for the run, helps you perform at your peak and reduces the risk of injury. You can warm up by jogging the 1.5km from the baggage bays to the start area and stretch when you get there. Wear warm clothing for as long as possible.

After the race Your race isn’t over just because you’ve crossed the finish line. Warming down is just as important as warming up. Don’t stop when you’ve crossed the line. Keep moving around, jog a little, then walk so your body can adjust. The most dangerous period for any runner is the 20 minutes at the end of the event. Being dehydrated can lead to fatigue, headaches, muscle cramps and reduced coordination. So pay attention to your pre-, during and post-run hydration. One pound of weight loss through sweat is equal to one pint of water, so replenish this amount after your run. Don’t eat a big meal for at least an hour. It’s better to eat a little and often for the six hours after the race.

Make sure you arrive at the baggage bays fully hydrated - your wellbeing is your responsibility.

Take a sensible approach to your run - tips for enjoying your 10k and staying well from The British Red Cross

Guidelines for runners Preparations...

Nutrition

As always, a sensible approach needs to be taken to all distance running especially with regard to training, which will be different for each person. The first thing to do if you are not a club or experienced runner is to have a medical with your GP to ascertain if it is sensible for you to take part in the event and if given the all clear, to then start building up your exercise regime at least six months prior to the event.

Nutrition plays a part in fitness and carbohydrate ‘loading’ can enhance running performance by allowing the competitor to run at optimal pace for a longer period before fatiguing. For the well-trained runner, this may be achieved by tapering exercise over the final days before the race and ensuring carbohydrate intakes of 10-12 g/kg/day over the 36-48 hours prior to the race. Sports nutrition guidelines recommend the runner consumes sufficient amounts of carbohydrates to promote restoration of muscle glycogen between training sessions.

Medical Conditions If you have a medical condition and your Doctor still says that you can compete in a long distance run then it is sensible to inform the race organiser of your pre-existing condition so that in the event of you becoming ill during the race, the medical team can be made aware of your pre-existing condition. If you have a ‘medic alert’ bracelet, then make sure you wear it for the race.

4 PUDDLE DOCK / VICTORIA EMBANKMENT / WHITE LION HILL, LONDON EC4 This is a great viewing location as runners will pass this intersection THREE TIMES providing you with a plenty of opportunity to spot and cheer your runners on.

5 VICTORIA EMBANKMENT - BETWEEN GOLDEN JUBILEE BRIDGE / BIG BEN Best side for viewing is River Thames side as runners make their way towards Big Ben and the London Eye after completing the City of London part of the course.

There is not much joy in being around Trafalgar Square or behind the finish line five rows back from the race route unable to spot or cheer your friends running the race.

THE 2014 BRITISH 10K LONDON RUN NEXT YEAR’S BRITISH 10K LONDON RUN WILL BE ANOTHER SPECIAL OCCASION MARKING THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF WORLD WAR 1. Prime Minister David Cameron has outlined a programme of national commemorations to mark the centenary of the First World War. He said he wants a series of events that will touch "every corner of the country" in 2014 - along similar lines to the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2012.

part in commemorating the anniversary too. The race finishes on Whitehall with all participants passing the Cenotaph - the national memorial for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in past and current conflicts.

HELP FOR HEROES OFFICIAL CHARITY 2014 London will be at the centre of these events and the British 10k London Run will play its

The British 10k London Run are proud to have Help for Heroes (H4H) as their charity

partner in 2014. This inspiring charity is delivering an enduring national network of support for those who have suffered life changing injuries and illnesses and their families. H4H enables those who have made sacrifices on our behalf to achieve their full potential and has changed the public’s perception of those returning from current conflicts.

IN THIS 100TH ANNIVERSARY YEAR, TAKE TIME TO REFLECT ON THE SACRIFICES MADE BY SO MANY AND RUN FOR HELP FOR HEROES TO SUPPORT THOSE WHOSE LIVES HAVE BEEN CHANGED FOREVER. Sergeant Simon Harmer was just one month into his tour, serving with the Royal Army Medical Corps in Afghanistan, when he stepped on an IED. He survived the blast, but it took both his legs. Running for H4H will help the charity to ensure that, as a nation, we offer the best support to those, like Simon, who have become seriously wounded as a result of their service. H4H has supported Simon and his family throughout his recovery. He says:

PAGE 32

'It is hard to vocalise what H4H means to me, they have helped me on so many different levels. From funding the swimming pool at Headley Court and the money granted for my home, to changing the public's perception of those who are returning wounded. The wristband is now an iconic symbol of support that people instantly recognise; it is such a comfort when you see people wearing them. Knowing that they care makes you feel humble.'

MARKS THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF WW1 The unveiling of the Cenotaph in 1919 Š Copyright Imperial War Museum

THE CENOTAPH IN WHITEHALL, LONDON HAS PLAYED HOST TO NATIONAL WAR COMMEMORATIONS FOR THE PAST 100 YEARS. The Cenotaph was originally intended as a small part of the Peace Day events of July 1919. The Cenotaph was designed and built by Edwin Lutyens at the request of the then Prime Minister Lloyd George. The unveiling ceremony for the Cenotaph was part of a larger procession bringing the British Unknown Soldier to be laid to rest in his tomb located nearby in Westminster Abbey. The so-called Unknown Warrior was selected from several possible

The funeral procession route passed the Cenotaph, where the waiting King laid a wreath on the Unknown Warrior's gun-carriage before proceeding to unveil the memorial which was draped in large Union Flags. The British 10k finish line is just past the Cenotaph on Whitehall, the final landmark runners pass before the finish line. Runners passing the Cenotaph
