Charleen Cannone, General Manager, for the event organisers said: “We are delighted to be returning to Wembley for the third instalment of the Vitality North London Half Marathon! We are expecting more people than ever to be inspired to take part in this exciting running event for London, with a route that also takes in Allianz Park, home of the mighty Saracens! Perfectly timed exactly six weeks before the Virgin Money London Marathon, we anticipate that many full marathon runners in training will also take the opportunity of a pre-marathon training run on the streets of London.

All runners in 2017 will receive a finishers t-shirt, fantastic medal, premium goody bag and post-race massage on race day. To secure your limited early bird discount at £38 for affiliated runners and £40 for unaffiliated entry, visit www.northlondonhalf.com.

The event is part of the Vitality Run Series, which is sponsored by Vitality, the health and life insurer that rewards healthy living. The official national charity partner once again is Macmillan Cancer Support.

Neville Koopowitz, Vitality CEO, said: "We are delighted to be supporting the Vitality North London Half Marathon for a third year and hope the route, which finishes in the iconic Wembley Stadium, will inspire even more people to get involved.”

Julie Harrington, Operations Director of Wembley Stadium, said: “We are delighted that the Vitality North London Half Marathon is returning to Wembley Stadium for its third year. It is always a pleasure for us to welcome the runners to the stadium as they prepare to cross the finish line under our iconic arch.”

Gordon Banks, Saracens Stadium Director, said: “The Vitality North London Half Marathon has become a key date in calendar for race enthusiasts and the local community. We are delighted to once again announce that Allianz Park will form an integral part of the race in 2017. Last year’s Vitality North London Half Marathon saw over thousands of runners take to the streets of Barnet, Brent and North London in a world-class running event that they can be proud of and we are excited that Allianz Park will once again be at the heart of it all.”

Macmillan Cancer Support are delighted to be the lead national charity again for 2017. Sally Tibbitts,  Events Programme Manager, said: “In 2016 we had an amazing 600 runners join Team Macmillan for the Vitality North London Half Marathon, and through their support we are able to help more people affected by cancer. This year we want to be bigger and better and help even more people. No one should have to face cancer alone.”
