The Standard Chartered Great City Race is a unique 5km corporate running challenge which takes place around the closed off streets of the City of London.
Seeing is Believing, which is an initiative to help tackle avoidable blindness around the world, is this year's official race beneficiary and all funds raised will be matched by Standard Chartered pound for pound.
Last year more than 5,000 runners took part in the race, made up of teams from over 350 different companies. If you are interested in participating in the 2013 event which will take place in July, please visit the race entry page.
