CHRISTMAS

CHELSEA

BRAND NEW RUNNING TOUR FOR 2021

​Of all the boroughs in London, Chelsea certainly knows how to “do” Christmas. Run 8km with us and uncover the amazing shop fronts and doors that adorn Chelsea at Christmas, as well as their festive light displays and trees. We’ll be starting at the Natural History Museum’s famous ice rink (to celebrate its final year!), weaving through the wonders of the King’s Road and Duke of York Square and ending at the Tate Britain which always puts on a spectacular show.

Come wearing your very best festive running gear! We’ll be playing Christmas carols as we go-ho-ho, as well as stopping off for a mince pie at an independent bakery on the tour (enjoy mid-tour or save for the end).

HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT TO OUR 5K & 10K CHRISTMAS LIGHTS TOUR?

There are some lights you just have to visit at Christmas: Carnaby Street, Regent Street, Oxford Street, Bond Street, Covent Garden etc… but making sure we hit all of these means we don’t have much wiggle room to explore the festivities of Chelsea in full. So we’ve created a separate tour for those that want to explore the classiest neighbourhood of them all this Christmas.

Already signed up for a 5k/10k Christmas Lights tour? Take a look at your confirmation email for a 25% off discount code for our Christmas in Chelsea tour! 

Please note that there's no bag drop for the Christmas in Chelsea tour. Please bring a backpack and pack light. As with our standard Christmas lights tour, we're not providing hats for environmental reasons. So please come in your long-lasting festive best!

PRIVATE BOOKINGS

We're now taking private bookings for Christmas 2021. Book your own private guide(s) for your running club, office or group of friends to explore Christmas in Chelsea at a date/time of your choice. We get very busy at Christmas - please get in touch early to secure your preferred date.

Price is £255 for a private tour with 1 guide.  (which works out at £17 per person), but will take 20 people if you need. More than 15/20 will need a second guide. 20% VAT not included

5* TRIPADVISOR REVIEW

"Took part in the Yule Jog 10k last night - 24 Santa’s, 1 reindeer and 2 elves (I was one of them)! Absolutely brilliant tour, Matt was an amazing leader, funny and entertaining and kept us all together. Had an amazing time, so much fun and all ready for Christmas now! Highly recommend! The biggest question is what’s the costume next year?!"

JANE DAVIS
FACEBOOK RECCOMENDATION

"What a fantastic evening! A great way to see the lights, some of which I didn’t even know existed! Sophie was excellent with great guiding all the way round and lots of information about the sights, traditions and general facts about the places we visited. A definite for next year."

KIRSTY

5* TRIPADVISOR REVIEW

"I organised a private Christmas lights 10k running tour for my running mates and have to say from the ease of booking to the actual event itself it was fantastic! Our tour guide Cat was great fun and knowledgeable and we had lots of laughs along the way. The route was fab as we got to see so many wonderful light displays that normally we wouldn’t get the opportunity to admire and had lots of fab photos taken whilst singing along to festive tunes. Thanks Cat and to the Secret London Runs team - we will be back"
