Christmas Lights Running Tour route


The group will meet at Covent Garden, the heart of London's Christmas lights.

From there, the group will fly through the streets of the capital and you'll be able to marvel at the famous lights of Carnaby Street, Regent Street, Seven Dials, Oxford Street, Sloane Square, Harrods, Trafalgar square and many more places you may not be familiar with.

The tour will last about 2 hours and finishes at Victoria Station.

The Festively Fast is for people who are comfortable running 10k in 9 minute miles or less. If you would like to do this event at a slower pace, please check out the Merrily Medium or Gentle Jingle events.

Kit List

Festive fancy dress is not compulsory but it is highly encouraged. It always adds to the Christmas spirit so feel free to be creative.


Will I be able to keep up?

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.

Gentle Jingle (if you're comfortable running 10k in 12-13 minute miles)
Merrily Medium (if you're comfortable running 10k in 10-11 minute miles)
Festively Fast (if you're comfortable running 10k in 9 minute miles or under)

If you don't feel you can run at the Festively Fast pace, it is advised that you change to the Gentle Jingle or Merrily Medium events so you can enjoy the sights more.

Please note that the above groups are available on several different dates throughout December, so if you can't make one, check out the other dates on Let's Do This.

What if I can't run 10km?
Don't worry, there are 5km versions of the Merrily Medium and Gentle Jingle events available on Let's Do This as well.
