Route description
Route description

Following the traditional Santa Parade from Paternoster Square to the start line at Millennium Bridge, this festive 5k will start crossing over the Thames and enjoying world-class views of Tower Bridge and the Shard.

From here, the route crosses Southwark Bridge to hug the north embankment running towards the Tower of London and London Bridge.

Next, runners will return through the city back over the bridge towards St Paul's Cathedral to the finish line on St Peter's Hill, completing an iconic loop of London's sights.

This 5k is the perfect run for new and experienced runners alike, as its mostly flat and run along roads. So run, walk, or jog this December and enjoy that Christmas feeling.

There will be runs on both the Wednesday and Thursday to ensure you don't miss out.
