This race will be the final event in the Stragglers club Summer Grand Prix. Click here for entries and all race info, and read on for a few updates from previous years.
Our Race Charity
This year the Wedding Day 7K is supporting the MDS Patient Support Group. Based in King's College Hospital, it was started in 2008 to raise awareness and offer support and information to patients and families affected by Myelodysplastic Syndromes and it is a charity that The Straggler's have also supported through other events including Cabbage Patch 10.
One significant change this year is that we do not have a race t-shirt as a memento. Most Wedding Day shirts have a short period of being worn. Therefore, in a move to reduce our environmental impact as well as controlling the events costs and fees we have change the race memento to a wooden medal. However, you will be able to purchase a Wedding Day shirt from The Straggler's club kit supplier if you wish.
New Race Categories
Veteran Race Categories will be in 10 year bands from 40 for both male and female competitors.
