REVIEWS

This is a special one-off event, but check out some of the lovely reviews our amazing customers have left about some of our other guided running tours of London

Secret London Runs should not be a secret!

"Oh what an amazing experience! The wonderful founder Vanessa led us on a power women's running tour and it was epic! Vanessa's knowledge, enthusiasm and sunny disposition coupled with running are a win-win. We were taken to locations we would normally walk straight past and learnt the most fascinating stories of women from yesteryear! The routes are well planned and fantastic and the knowledge imparted with us will stay with me forever. Thank you Secret Runs London, I will be back..."

5* TRIPADVISOR REVIEW

"Another great run with Secret London Runs. This time the lovely Vikki took us around the East End of London to find out more about the Power Women of the East End. We ran at our pace and Vikki kept to that, making sure nobody got left behind. She was very knowledgeable and took us to places we had never been before, loved the hidden graveyard near Bow and the Street Art. Already planning our next tour!

5* TRIPADVISOR REVIEW

"I took part in Secret London Run's Crime and Punishment led by Maxine. I went along as a group of friends from my local running club and the pace that Maxine kept allowed us all to feel able to keep up but enjoy the running we did too. The time flew by with the sights to see of London mixed in with the really interesting information given by Maxine as we stopped periodically to take things in. Our running club will be looking forward to booking another tour in the near future and I'll definitely be on the list to go."
