Route information
This Christmas Lights tour will see groups of 10 people running around London at its most festive time of the year.
While the route will remain the same, there are different paces available depending on the speed you are most comfortable with.
10k:
The group will meet at Trafalgar Square (near the fountains), home of London's iconic Christmas Tree.
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, Trafalgar Square, Oxford Street, Paddington, Kensington Palace, Bond Street and many more places you may not be familiar with.
Each speed falls across different dates throughout the year, so if you can't find the one you're looking for then be sure to check out another date.
*If you don't feel you can run at the Merrily Medium pace, it is advised that you change to the Gentle Jingle events so you can enjoy the sights more.
The 10k tour ends at Notting Hill Station.

FAQ's

There will be no more than 10 people per pace.
CaretLeft
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. See Course Details above for information on speeds. If you aren't sure which pace you should choose it is advised that you air on the side of caution and choose the slower pace. This allows a more enjoyable run and gives you more time to see the sights.
CaretLeft
What if I can't run a 10k?
There is also a 5k event available on this date.

What are the Junior tickets?
