COVID-19

We hope all our friends and followers are safe. Due to COVID-19, all our runs are postponed until further notice. Of course this is having a huge impact on our business, but the most important thing for us is to stay connected to our customers. On this page you'll find a number of ways that we'll continue to share our love of running through London's secret past with you - as well as a couple of ways you can support us.  If you are booked onto a tour, please scroll down to the bottom of this page for more information.

VIRTUAL EVENTS

VIRTUAL GIN RUN - BANK HOLIDAY EDITION 

29TH AUGUST - 3RD SEPT

Gin-loving runners - unite! Celebrate the August Bank Holiday by running 3k, 5k,10k or a half marathon and rehydrating with a finish-line G&T. And as a fun twist, we'll be collectively trying to drink our way through the UK's 1722 gins! Optional medals and prizes for the best finish-line photos.

OKTOBERFEST VIRTUAL CRAFT BEER RUN

26TH - 27TH SEPT

Pull on your best lederhosen and celebrate Oktoberfest in the very best of company. Wherever you are in the world on 26th or 27th September, run 3k, 5k, 10k, a Half Marathon or a full Marathon and celebrate before, during and/or after with a well-deserved craft beer. Optional medals and prizes for the best finish-line photos.

THE 90 MINUTE DASH - 1ST & 2ND AUGUST AND THE FIRST WEEKEND OF EVERY MONTH

Runners, walkers and couch potatoes - gather together to create the ultimate virtual team and compete in The 90 Minute Dash! In this treasure-hunt style event, your team (of up to 5 members) will be given a list of 60 items in your virtual briefing. Then you'll have 90 minutes to plan your mission and track down each of the items. Teammates can be based in different cities and countries - so this is a great opportunity to come together with loved ones and do something fun.

FREE 5K VIRTUAL GIN RUNNING TOUR

Run with our founder, Vanessa, on our first virtual tour, through the City of London and the West End and explore the 18th century gin craze - a time when the city got so sozzled on gin that it's been likened to the crack cocaine epidemic in 1980s America.

MONTHLY VIRTUAL INTERACTIVE QUIZ - FIRST TUESDAY OF EACH MONTH

Test your London trivia with our friendly bunch of quizzers on Facebook Live. We go live at 7:45PM for a chat, but you only need to join us at 8:15PM. There's a winner's prize every month and plenty of fun to be had.

ONLINE COACHING

Struggling with motivation during this time? Take a look at our brand new online coaching service! Following an initial consultation, our fully qualified running coaches will create a bespoke programme for you and keep you on track with weekly and monthly check-ins.
