The Gentle Jingle is for people who are comfortable running 10k in 12-13 minute miles. If you would like to do this event at a faster pace, please check out the Merrily Medium or Festively Fast events.

The route begins at the heart of London's illuminations, Covent Garden.

From there, the route will continue through the streets of the capital and runners will marvel at the 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.

After about 2 hours of festive fun, the tour will end at Victoria Station.

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)
