RBC Race for the Kids 2019

We need everyone to race for the kids.

Saturday 12 October 2019

Hyde Park, London

Join us for the 10th anniversary of RBC Race for the Kids, our 5k and family festival. Walk, jog, wheel or scoot 5k with your family to help seriously ill children.

Over the last ten years, the RBC Race for the Kids has raised more than £5 million for the children and families at Great Ormond Street Hospital. Your extraordinary fundraising has made all the difference to kids with rare and complex conditions from right across the UK. This year will be our biggest Race yet and we're hoping to raise an incredible £1 million – but we can only do that with your incredible support!

Kids go free!

To celebrate a delightful decade, all kids at the 2019 event go free! Our family festival and 5K fun run – set among the autumn leaves of Hyde Park – is the perfect day out for all ages and abilities. There'll be live entertainment from the team at Butlins, an eclectic mix of fabulous family activities, and even a few famous faces!

Join the fun

Book today to confirm your place. You will receive a race pack (including your race day t-shirt) in the post, and on completion of the event, you will receive a medal and a goody bag for every child taking part. Want to know more?
