CaretLeft
What do I need to bring with me?
Bring your ticket on your phone and water if you usually run with it. Wear warmer clothes than you usually would for a run of this length as there will be a couple of stops throughout the run as the guides unveil London's untold history.
CaretLeft
Will I be able to keep up?
Your guide will run at the pace of the slowest runner so that no one is left behind. Runners are asked to sign up to the group that they are most comfortable with, so you should be grouped with runners of a similar pace. See Course Details above for more information.
CaretLeft
How big are groups?
Groups are a maximum of 10 people per pace.
