About the event
We're so excited to be jingling with Google for a fabulous Christmas lights running tour!
Every year the streets of London are transformed by a series of world-renowned light displays and twinkling trees. On a brand new route for this year, your private Christmas-loving guide will lead you through the 2021 highlights on a beautiful 5k run.
There'll be plenty of time for pho-ho-hotos and a little festive history along the way. And of course, we'll be playing festive tunes as we go-ho-ho!
Pace: This is not a race. Nobody is aiming for a PB as we jingle through the Christmas lights. We run at a pace that everyone is comfortable with - and no one gets left behind.
What to wear: For environmental reasons, we’re not providing santa hats this year. But we would LOVE you to wear your own long-lasting festive hat and as much Christmas fancy dress as you wish for the tour. We’ll be giving a prize for the best-dressed tour of the season! There’s no such thing as ‘too festive’.
STARTS/ENDS AT: The Somerset House Christmas tree (entrace on the strand, nearest tubes Temple and Covent Garden).
DISTANCE: 5km (with regular stops for lights, festive history, pho-ho-ho-tos)
TIME: 6:30pm - Please arrive 5-10 minutes prior to your tour. We will be starting promptly at 6:30pm.
BAG DROP: Yes. If you wish to use the bag drop, this will be located at City of London distillery. You must arrive at the bag drop no later than 30 minutes before the tour. It's at 0.6 mile (1km) walk to the start or you can take the 11 or 15 bus.
FANCY DRESS: Strongly encouraged and rewarded!
