The Bridges Handicap Race is a traditional running race held in Westminster, London at 12:30 on the second Wednesday of every month. The race, often known as 'The Lensbury', is run over a course of 2.3 miles, and runners are given handicap times based on their last performance. The course begins and ends by Westminster Bridge, in front of St. Thomas' Hospital on the Albert Embankment and crosses Vauxhall Bridge and Lambeth Bridge.

The London Business Houses Bridges Relay is run on the same course annually. The race has a long history going back over 30 years and two of the original runners still race regularly.[1]
