London run

London’s Run 2012 – It’s Been a Good Run.
London Solomon

The first London’s Run was a benefit event for London’s family in 2006 made possible by the caring support of the Queen Creek residents. London Solomon was a courageous six year old girl who fought a brave and cheerful fight against an aggressive type of leukemia (AML). Her grace still inspires all of us to take advantage of each new day without fear of doing hard things and cherishing our relationships with each other. To read London’s story click here.

London’s Run is a great day for accomplished and beginning runners alike to compete on a flat course, unpaved through the peaceful farming community of Queen Creek. The proceeds will go to support families (like London’s) in crisis situations.We encourage participants to “run for someone”; either for family members, friends or our beneficiaries! Are you up to the challenge?

Thank you for everyone who joined us for the final year of London’s Run! It’s been such a great journey and we’re glad that you shared it with us.

The 2012 Final Race-Results are now posted! Click here to see the results.

It has been announced that this will be the FINAL year of London’s Run! We appreciate your participation throughout the years, but we are unable to continue putting the event on. In all the years and runs combined about 82,000 miles have been run at London’s Run. If that were a relay, we’d have gone around the earth 3 times! We’ve also raised over a quarter of a million dollars for charity. That being said, it will be the best year yet! Please note that there are caps on the 1/2 Marathon (650 runners) and 10K (750 runners) this year. Please register early to secure your spot!
