January can sometimes feel a little bit depressing, the Downton Abbey Christmas special is over for another year, and the gloomy task of taking down the decorations is on the horizon, so what better way to shake things up a bit than by setting yourself a challenge to get yourself fit and motivated for the new year, and sign up for a 10k!

Oh yes, we’re talking about the British 10k London Run!

We’ve got five completely free places to give away in this year's race, so if you want to get fit and join a fantastic event whilst raising money for people with HIV then we want YOU to run for us! We did have six places but one keen runner has already bagged himself a place (Peter, we salute you) so be quick and register your interest today!

The race takes place in London on 14th July which gives you loads of time to get in shape. The race takes you around an iconic central London route starting in Piccadilly and around past Trafalgar Square, the magnificent St Paul's Cathedral, the London Eye, Big Ben, the British Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey before your triumphant finish on Whitehall. You can find out more on the official website.

So…how about it?

Did you wonder about it last year? Toy with the idea? Suggest it to your mates but then dismissed it? Well this year it’s time to act! There’s no time like the present so register now to join the NAM team and be one of the 25,000 people who come together every year to take part in this event.

The 10k isn’t just a run around London and a shiny medal at the end (did we mention you get a medal?). It’s about real people coming together to make a real difference to people’s lives, and that’s a fantastic thing to be a part of. The money you raise will help us to continue to support the thousands of people all over the world that rely on us to keep them up to date with accurate, impartial information about HIV so that they can look after their health and live healthily and happily.

Have we managed to convince you yet?

If not, have a read of some stories from our previous runners which include photos from the day. And of course feel free to give us a call on 020 3242 0820 if you need any further information at all (or a pep talk).
