Charity run set to take in the sights of Eton College

Published: Thursday 23rd of October 2008

This Sunday sees the annual Dorney Lake Cancer Research UK 10k Run proceed around Eton College's famous aquatic facility.

The event, part of a large number of races which take place across the country for one of the UK's biggest charities each year, will see thousands of runners aiming to raise money and awareness.

The organiser of Cancer Research UK's races, Emma Barlow, said: "Running 10k gives people the chance to head into the great outdoors and get a real sense of achievement when they cross the finishing line."

Dorney Lake is a custom-built 2000-metre rowing facility used by Eton College, one of the most historic and prestigious educational institutions in the world. The lake will host three events during the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Royal Princes Harry and William both attended Eton College up until the age of 18.

LondonPass holders can enjoy free entry to the guided tour around the grounds and buildings of Eton College, saving £5.50 for adults and £4.50 for children.
