See you next Sunday!
…however there will be a few T-shirts to buy at the Event Centre on the day!
If you ordered a T-shirt when entering, you’ll be able to pick it up on the day at the Event Centre.
A big entry from Andebu IL in Norway means we are well above the 800 mark now, so as promised here is a race photo. It shows the main start arena at West India Quay. The photo is tonemapped – we can’t promise the colours will be quite so vibrant on the day! You’ll recognise those cranes though. It was taken by Dave Pearce under a CC licence and the original can be seen at http://www.flickr.com/photos/davebass5/6789259528.
Top countries for entries (updated 31 August):
Open House London is this year taking place on the same weekend as the London City Race. This is a once-a-year chance to visit many interesting buildings in London that are not normally open to the public, including several on the London City Race map, such as One Canada Square, the most famous skyscraper in Canary Wharf. Some buildings require booking in advance, but many are just turn-up-and-queue.
Competitors taking part in the London City Race on 22 September will have another sporting event to enjoy after their own race – the 8th and final stage of the Tour of Britain 2013 cycle race will be taking place a few miles to the west, in the City of London and Westminster, from 15:30, with an estimated finish time of 17:30 on Whitehall.
Run the London City Race and then catch a train from Greenwich to Charing Cross, or a Jubilee Line train from Canary Wharf to Westminster, to the centre of the cycling action. There will be numerous spectator locations from where you can watch Mark Cavendish and the other top world cyclists battle it out. The tour begins a week earlier in the Scottish Borders.
Come for one race, stay for two!
The London City Race team was competing in the Scottish 6 Days last week, but while we were away, entries surged past 500, thanks to a block entry of 24 athletes from COBS (Club d’Orientation des Boucles de la Seine) in France. Their entry puts France in the No. 1 list for overseas countries with 29 runners, ahead of Norway (on 20), Poland and Spain. With over 100 overseas entrants so far, the 6th London City Race promises to have an international feel.
Entries close at the end of the month – get yours in now!
