When is RBC Race for the Kids 2023?

RBC Race for the Kids takes place on Saturday 7 October 2023 in London's Hyde Park.

Walk, jog, wheel, or scoot 5k with your family and join the race to help beat childhood cancer.

Set among the autumn leaves of Hyde Park, our family festival and fun run is the perfect day out for all ages and abilities. There'll be live entertainment, an eclectic mix of fabulous family activities, and even a few famous faces. And what’s more, kids go free!

Our warm-up starts at 9.30am before the race at 10am, with entertainment in our festival village until 2pm.

There isn't a minimum sponsorship amount, we just ask that you raise as much as you can.

How your support will help

The money raised from RBC Race for the Kids will help build a new world-class Children's Cancer Centre, that will treat the child, not just their disease. It will be a gateway for children to go on to better futures, where they not only survive, but flourish.

Together we can build it, together we can help beat childhood cancer.

All the funds raised will go towards the development of cancer care at Great Ormond Street Hospital. In the event that costs change, or the needs of the hospital or patients change, we reserve the right to redirect funds for use against the hospital’s most urgent needs.
