PLACES are available for people to take part in a run around London and raise money for the air ambulance.

The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance has 20 places for the Bupa London 10,000, a 10-kilometre race on May 27.

And there are still 14 places left for people to take part and run for the voluntary air ambulance charity.

The air ambulance relies solely on donations in order to run its service.

The route passes many of London’s famous sights, including Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, The London Eye, Cleopatra’s Needle, the Millennium Bridge and St Paul’s Cathedral.

Runners will also get to pound part of the Olympic Marathon course.

The registration fee is £25 and a minimum of £300 needs to be raised in sponsorship.

The route starts and finishes in St James’s Park and uses Green Park as its assembly area.
