Standard Chartered Great City Race - 24th July 2017

Following the announcement of the General Election on 8 June, the date of a State Visit at the Guildhall has been moved which means that it is not possible to hold the Standard Chartered Great City Race as originally scheduled on 13 July 2017.

The 2017 Standard Chartered Great City Race will now take place on Monday 24 July.

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.

The corporate team running event, which aims to raise funds and awareness for the official race beneficiary Seeing is Believing, will feature companies from the Accountancy, Banking, Media, Insurance and Legal sectors.

Seeing is Believing is committed to help tackle avoidable blindness across the world and this year, all funds raised through the race will be used to support the ongoing East Africa Child Eye Health programme.


“Every team of four who enter this year’s will provide enough funding to train 1 health worker in Primary Eye Care”
