Route information
This Christmas Lights Running 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.
The Tour

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

Kit List
Feel free to get creative.
Festive fancy dress is not compulsory but it is highly encouraged. It always adds to the Christmas feel.
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 information about speeds.
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.
How big are groups?
Groups are a maximum of 10 people per pace.
This event currently has no reviews, why not be the first? You could help someone find their perfect event.
