frequently asked questions

If you can't find an answer then please contact us at [email protected]
Can I bring friends and family to cheers me on?

Absolutely, the more the merrier! Let's make these baton handovers the best experiences ever!

How much does it cost?

It costs £20 to run a stage of the I Move London Relay and includes an I Move London Relay t-shirt! Virtual stages are free to enter, however, it would be awesome if you could make a donation during sign-up to our charity partners!

Do I have to fundraise as well?

There is no compulsory fundraising target but this is a fundraising event and we’d love for you to raise funds for our charity partners. We are raising funds and awareness for The Running Charity, Sported, and Laureus. All the money raised will be shared equally between the charities.

Does the £20 entry fee go to charity?

The entry fee goes towards paying for the cost of the event. The money you fundraise from your profile will go straight to the charities.

Should I get the media involved?

Sure thing! Get in touch with your local paper, radio and TV stations and tell them what you’re doing and why. And, if you’ve got contacts who can help put the I Move London Relay on the national news agenda too - terrific!

What if I find I am unable to run my stage?

You must notify the organisers immediately by emailing [email protected] with the subject line ‘URGENT: I CANNOT RUN MY STAGE’. If you are the lead runner on your stage and no other runners have signed up to join you, please do your best to help find a replacement runner. We regret that no refunds on registration fees can be given.

What is the world record attempt?

The I Move London Relay is an Official Guinness World Record attempt for the longest not-stop running relay. For the attempt to be valid the relay baton must not touch the floor at any point during the entire relay. Runners can stop still with the baton for stage handovers or just for a selfie, provided the baton is never put down!

Where is the meeting point for my stage?

We're located at Potters Fields Park. You won't miss us!

Who can run?

Anyone can run, provided you are able to maintain an average pace of 11 minutes per mile for the duration of a stage. 5k group stages are open to everyone regardless of average pace! U18s must run with a responsible adult and have signed authorisation from their legal guardian.

Will the relay run on time?

It is the joint responsibility of all runners to keep the relay running to time. Please do everything in your power to prevent delays. We’re all relying on you!
