Thursday 8th March 2018
Start between 6.30pm and 7.00pm

How many places relating to London's inspiring women can you and your team find in 80 minutes? 

You and your crew will be given a map 1 week before the event and together you'll plot a route.


On the night, the clock will start and you'll be out on the streets to track down places, plaques and tributes linking to inspiring women from history. Each point on the map has a marshal who will give you a token when you find them.

Your aim? To be the team to bring the most tokens back to the start. Make sure you don't go over the time limit.. there will be penalties!

Every runner gets a special IWD Run 2018 t-shirt and a glass of prosecco at the finish line.

Event FAQs

I can start any time between 6:30pm and 7pm?
Yes. Our base is at Rudds, so you can use the facilities, bag drop, get your team's race number. Then you'll start the clock any time between 6.30pm and 7pm. The marshals will be coming in at 8:20pm.

Do we have to run together?
No. You can use any strategy you like to collect as many different tokens as you can in the time limit among your team.

Can men join us?
Yes, anyone supporting IWD 2018 is welcome

Can I come alone?

Absolutely - we'll join you up with other runners to compete on the night.

When will I get my t-shirt and race pack?

We'll be giving you these on the night - no postage means more money goes straight to the charity!

I don't want to run, but would love to be involved...
Excellent - we're looking for volunteers to marshal the race, give out tokens and help us register the runners. Please email to offer.

Can I get sponsored too?

Definitely - the event is on Virgin Money Giving and we'd love you to raise extra money for Freedom from Fistula.

We're a charity and would love to be involved!

We'd love you to be involved. We have an area booked at Rudds, and you can set up a fundraising activity for your charity. Please email


Can we walk?

Yes. There will be plenty of places on the map near to Rudds so you can still join in if you're injured or aren't into running.

How far is it?

However far you can make it in the 80 minutes. You can run as much or as little as you like. But we expect most runners to clock between 6km and 10km.

Our Partners

We're delighted to be donating all the profits from the run to:

Freedom from Fistula helps women in Africa who are injured in childbirth and left suffering from obstetric fistula - a condition that leaves them incontinent, often living as outcasts and shunned by their families and communities. Obstetric fistula is caused when a woman endures prolonged obstructed childbirth with no access to medical care. Freedom from Fistula currently operates projects in Sierra Leone, Malawi, Madagascar and Kenya, helping these women by providing free surgeries to heal their fistulas; free and accessible maternity care; and training for midwives and other healthcare professionals.

You'll also meet Womankind's marathon team, who will be doing some fundraising at the event:

We're very grateful to be sponsored by:

Hannah Hall Photography - Hannah is a wedding photographer based in Northamptonshire who fell into wedding photography completely by accident; luckily her accident was a happy one because she loves a wedding and can't get enough of them. Over the last three years she's had the pleasure of witnessing over 130 couples say "I do" [including Secret London Run's very own Vanessa and Josh] while raising her two young daughters and very slowly falling in love with running... very slowly.

Would you like to sponsor the event too? We'd love to hear from you. Email
