Organised by Run-Fast Ltd, better known as a global sports management company, the event, to be held on Sunday, June 22, will cover a one Mile course following a historic route taking in Mansion House, the Bank of England, Guildhall and St. Mary-le-Bow Church, as well as part of the London Olympic marathon course.
