A group of our team went down for the 7pm leg of the race. It was a warm summer night which made it fun to run a lap on the Thames before passing the baton onto the next group. The Tower of London and surrounding area was good to grab drinks and food afterwards.… read more

Great event! Lovely route by the Thames and the marshals were very friendly and helpful. Feels amazing to be part of such a big thing logistically, and even better that it's for a charitable cause! Will definitely do it next year again.

Love it, love it, love it. This is not your run-of-the-mill corporate London race but all about getting people to run together and enjoy London at times when the city is at its most beautiful, all while raising money for a good cause. I met so many lovely people at the London Relay in the two years it's been running, I can't wait for it to return in 2020.

A great experience and happy to take part in this. The course is really nice as it winds up and down the Thames. 2 small issues - the course wasn't that clearly marked in a couple of places and depending on the time of day you choose, there can be quite a bit of people dodging. Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed running this, including chatting with the lovely volunteers before and after the run.

I was prompted by friends to go and do this on my lunch break. There were some awesome people organising this and they were super helpful. The course was easy other than a mistake on my part but running buy the river is always a joy. I felt proud to be running with the batton and that I was taking part in something special. If you are able to take part in this next time I would highly recommend it.

Did two early morning runs on my own but it was extremely peaceful and great to see the city late at night. The Marshal's were very friendly and gave helpful information regards to the course route. The course was very easy to follow and pretty much flat the entire way. It was a privilege to carry the Let's Do This baton round twice and am so glad I did the event despite the early morning wake ups

Such a cool concept and an event like no other! I filled the Monday 2am slot - that time when people are in amongst their deepest sleep after a busy weekend - and there I was running around the Thames with my overenthusiastic colleague Charles. There is something epic about taking part in events like this and I really couldn't recommend it more highly.

Great event. We did it as a group and it was really fun taking in some of London's top sights. The organisers were full of enthusiasm and there was a really nice atmosphere at the start and finish.

The course was great fun - even if it's a bit crowded, you really feel the vibrancy of London when you run through it like this, especially on the south side of the river. Running it with a couple friends only makes it more enjoyable. The atmosphere at the start/finish is good too, and the t-shirts are fantastic!

Lovely run along the river at just before noon on the 1st of July. Did get a little lost around Blackfriars bridge, and obviously it was starting to get quite busy around the river at that time, but all in all a lovely event. The organisers were great, the venue was lovely, and there was a real feeling of community about the whole thing. Might sign up for another leg!

Whether you do it by yourself, join a group of strangers or run with a group of friends, this event is so fun. Go for the evening times to avoid the sightseeing traffic (not that bad during busy times). Really proud to be part of the event

You don't get many chances in life to be part of something special but this relay was just amazing - great atmosphere and the thrill of handing the baton on to strangers- who quickly became friends was really moving. Fantastic location, and runners, volunteers, and passers by all had smiles on their faces - a truly ispirational event.

I did two stages of the London City Relay last summer--and each stage blew me away with the friendly and fun atmosphere. I did one with a smaller group and one with a bigger group, chatting and laughing and posing for photos with the relay baton, and then crossing the Tower Bridge! That was incredible because you could hear all the supporters cheering you on! Heading back into the home stretch and Relay HQ are the music and joy was second to none. Plus the finishing stage party was just awesome. Huge inflatable unicorn, beer, people hugging... it was an incredible experience and I CANNOT WAIT to do it again this year!!! Plus having the event support a London youth charity is just amazing. Run run run and get yourself signed up. Plus this year I hear there are awesome medals for all runners! VERY COOL.

Did a middle of the night slot with brilliant company from Annie Ross. Really loved running through central London in the middle of the night whilst everyone else slept and was a really beautiful course. Looking forward to being involved this year!

Fantastic cause with really enthusiastic organizers. Huge respect for those who were pulling night shifts keeping this relay going for 30 days straight, and I wish them well with future attempts! The course is fine, but I imagine you might get lost, get to know the route. I ran this with a big team of people, so great atmosphere the whole way around. Keep up the good work!

I absolutely loved this, it was like having our own little race with a small group of great friends. My friend signed up to hold the baton and asked us all to run with him. We got a later slot so we could have drinks and a catch up before, then turned up to the tent around 10pm I think. It was really well organised, great T-shirt’s and everyone knew what they were doing. We got a little lost once but I think that’s part of the fun 😂 It was fun running through London at night, and you definitely felt like you were part of something. It was a really cool London thing to do and I can’t recommend it enough, it’s for a great cause too.
