Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill did the honours and set the 14,000 runners on their way in the annual Vitality 10,000 that Starts in the Mall and finishes just in front of Buckingham Palace. In a balmy London summer’s day runners of all abilities took on the personal challenge, many running for charity.
“It was a great day – really inspiring to see so many people out on the streets of London running and keeping fit. I set a new personal best for high 5’s on the start line – the atmosphere was amazing,” said Dame Jessica.
Ennis-Hill is an ambassador for Vitality and was the face of their 10 weeks to 10k campaign for the race.
