The Secret Gin Run 10K - Speedy (sub 10mins/mile) & Steady (10-12mins/mile) routes

This running tour led by an gin-loving guide will take you through the gins & outs of London's historic gin scene. As you pass key landmarks, you will travel through time and history to unravel over 3000 years of fact, fiction, and fervor that surround London's gin-related history. After the run, rest & relax with a well-deserved G&T in the gin room of a historic London pub, knowing you are now a certified GINius.

This event makes up part of a larger series across a number of dates from March to October. Please note: this is a casual run and not a race. There are three different paces to choose from which are detailed below:

Half Walk/Half Run (mixing up intervals of gentle jogging with walking)
Steady (if you're comfortable running 10k in 10 - 12 minute miles)
Speedy (if you're comfortable running 10k in 10 minute miles and under)

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.
