The Bupa Great Capital Run was a 10-kilometre (6 mi) run through the paths of Hyde Park, London which was established in 2007. It was one of the Great Run race series.

The event started in 2007 as a 10k race in Hyde Park.[1] This format continued in 2008 with a new event for 8-to-14-year-olds, a 2.5-kilometre (1.6 mi) run. The fun run allows children to run fancy dressed, encourages children to enjoy exercise and run with mates. However, in 2009, the main race was reduced to 5k and moved to Regents Park.
