Route description
Route description

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 Merrily Medium

This is for people who are comfortable running 10k in 11-12 minute miles.

The Festively Fast

This is for people who are comfortable running 10k in 9 minute miles.

The Tour

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.

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.

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